Volumetric Histogram for Field Study of Carbonate Sediments: NOTES

Donald E. Hattin


The volumetric histogram is a teaching aid which permits field evaluation of sediment size distribution. Wet sediment fractions are taken from a standard sieve series and placed in graduated cylinders that are mounted in a row on a wooden base assembly. The resulting histogram can be used at the sample station for visual estimation of statistical parameters.
