Unformatted text preview: sediment samples was collected to help determine the composition of the sediments present, with emphasis on heavy metal content, quartz content and possible traces of carbonate sands. This information is used to help determine the source of the material. The core samples were used to help determine the chronology of the sediments, which is useful in identifying the distances in which the sediments have traveled. I feel your topic is a little broad. I understand the questions you are trying to address and why it is important, but I don’t understand how your planning to do your project. Also, to a non geologist, this project might need to be looked at a little closer to explain why exactly it is important to the general public. Also, your closing is not very finalized. You should reword it to make it a little more “conclusion” like....
