Sedimentary cycles: Polynology of sedimentary cycles B. Sequence stratigraphy and sedimentation of organic particles That helps this organic matter rise to the top, where you can scoop it out and measure it separately. It usually amounts to a few percent of the total volume of the sample. What's left is clean sediment, which you can measure as described above. At the end, your measurements will let you calculate four fractions—organic matter, sand, silt, and clay.

The three sediment size fractions will tell you what to call your soil, and the organic fraction is a sign of the soil's fertility. There are several ways to interpret the percentages of sand, silt, and clay in a sediment sample. Probably the most useful for everyday life is characterizing a soil. Loam is generally the best kind of soil, consisting of an equal amount of sand and silt and a somewhat smaller amount of clay. The variations from that ideal loam are classified as sandy, silty or clayey loam.

Geologists use other systems for their purposes, whether it's surveying the mud on the seafloor or testing the ground of a construction site. Other professionals, like farm agents and groundskeepers, also use these systems. The two most commonly used in the literature are the Shepard classification and the Folk classification. Professionals use strict procedures and a range of equipment to measure sediment. Get a taste of the complexities in the U. Share Flipboard Email.
Chapter 2: Pollution by sediments
Andrew Alden is a geologist who writes extensively about all aspects of geology, and leads research expeditions for professional organizations. Updated February 02, All you really need is a quart-sized jar and a ruler with millimeters. Shake the jar of water and sediment thoroughly—a full minute is plenty—set it down and leave it for 24 hours. Access Conditions License restrictions may limit access. Mode of access: World Wide Web.
