Sediment core photos, x-rays, and end-member grain size plot

Sediment core photos, X-rays, and grain size analysis shows annual differences in sediments from the same location

Detailed Description

Sediment color, X-ray patterns, and grain size can be used to determine provenance, or the source of sand. The photo of the 2012 core shows sediment composition before berm construction. In 2013, large amounts of sand with different color, X-ray patterns, and grain size were placed at this site from another location.
