From the analysis, the following can be deduced:
The sortability of the grains;
The environment of deposition (Paleoenvironmental reconstruction);
The energy of deposition (Paleocurrent current reconstruction);
Please note that this analysis does not in any way show / determine the mineralogical composition of the rock / soil unit.
Grain sizes range from gravel (conglomerates and coarser particles) to clay (fine particles). It is determined by its diameter and measured in millimeters (mm), micrometers (µm) or phi (ø).
Below are the soils ranges (in mm): Boulders >200 Cobbles 63-200 Gravel (Coarse) …
