... of authigenic and detrital kaolinites in porous media. In Fig.1a the booklet shape and the growth orientation of the authigenic kaolinite is evident, while detrital kaolinite in Fig.1b is an aggregate of particles with no specific orientation ( Wilson et al. 1977 ). Abstract Fines migration is one...
