Unformatted text preview: Name: ____________________________________ GY 111L Physical Geology Lab Sediment Analysis Lab Your Task : To become more familiar with sediment and analysis of sediment. In order to do this, you will work in groups to determine the grain size, shape and sorting characteristics of 4 types of sediment. Each row of students will work together to analyze one sediment sample. At the end of the lab, all data will be shared with other students. Essentially you have to fill in the data tables for each of the sediment samples and then plot up histograms to show the distribution of particles sizes (in weight percent). Due Date: Wednesday October 22 (by 2:30 PM) Sample 1: Starting (bulk sample) weight: _________________ (grams) Sediment type Weight of fraction (g) Weight % of fraction Gravel (< 2.0 mm) Coarse Sand Fine Sand Silt+clay Visual description of sediment 1) Grain sorting (choose from excellent, good, fair, poor) _________________________ 2) Grain rounding (choose from angular, fair, well ) ______________________________...
