In particular, the most useful methods related to the different types of mixing are reviewed: complete mixing (blending) or incomplete mixing (mingling). For blending, backscattered electron images and EDS (energy dispersive spectroscopy) are the most accurate methods: an example taken from a sample of ash of the 2007 St…
