Abstract

Since fragmental grains are characterized by specific mineralogical composition, as well as by size and specific gravity, grain-size sorting involves simultaneously a separation of grains according to mineralogical features. In considering questions relative to this process it is advisable to begin with a discussion of the genetic nature of the particles constituting sand-silt-clay sediments and rocks.
