Misconceptions--A Column about Errors in Geoscience Textbooks. Mythical Effects of Molecular Attraction on Groundwater Movement.
Wampler, Jesse Marion
Journal of Geoscience Education, v44 n4 p462-64 Sep 1996
Explores the origins of the myth expressed in many early geology textbooks that clay and shale are impervious to water. Misconceptions about the effects of molecular attraction on groundwater appear to have arisen from errant interpretations of correct physicochemical concepts. (PVD)
