EMU Notes in Mineralogy

The EMU Notes in Mineralogy present in a condensed form an up-to-date, excellent overview of a single topic of interest to the broader geoscience community. The volumes may be accompanied by an EMU summer school.

The Notes in Mineralogy are published together by the European Mineralogical Union (contact: Simona Krmíčková) and the Mineralogical Society of the United Kingdom and Ireland (contact: Kevin Murphy).

Purchase a copy of these books from the bookshop of the Mineralogical Society of the United Kingdom and Ireland. All chapters in volume 20 are fully open access!
