Grain-size distribution from foreshore and beach samples collected in 2009 in the vicinity of Wainwright, Alaska

Online link
Description Sediment grab samples were collected at 158 locations on the foreshore and beach in the vicinity of Wainwright, Alaska, in October of 2009. Two of the grab samples were sieved and analyzed for grain size distributions. The grain-size distribution of the remaining samples was determined from referenced photographs of collected samples taken in the lab following the method of Barnard and others (2007) using two-dimensional spectral decomposition of sediment images (Buscombe and others, 2010). Results of sieved samples were used to verify mean grain size values obtained with the image processing algorithm. Data are available in a single csv file. [More]
