4b. Which is well sorted? Which is poorly sorted?
Image of page 85
Layers of conglomerate and sandstone (arkose) Layers deposited by debris flows are unsorted or poorly sorted, with angular to sub-rounded clasts Layers deposited by flowing water are moderately sorted Clasts not well rounded because they haven’t traveled far Sometimes may have reddish color due to cementation by hematite 8.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
