The Influence of Different Transport Agents and Depositional Environments on Grain Size
The grain size of sedimentary rocks and deposits can be significantly affected by the transport and depositional environment. In particular, the type of transport agent and depositional environment can play a significant role in the sorting and size of the grains. For example, ocean waves are known to cause sorting of sedimentary grains, and can lead to the formation of well-rounded grains (Li and Dyer, 2019). In contrast, quiet water deposits, such as those found in lakes, can lead to the formation of poorly sorted and angular grains (Johns and Slingerland, 2020). Similarly, turbulent floods can also lead to the formation of poorly sorted and angular grains, due to the large range of grain sizes that can be transported in such environments (Li and Dyer, 2019). Overall, it is evident that the type of transport agent and depositional environment can have a large impact on the grain size of sedimentary deposits. Ocean waves can lead to the formation of well-rounded grains, while quiet water deposits and turbulent floods can lead to the formation of poorly sorted and angular grains. Understanding the impact of different transport agents and depositional environments on grain size is important for interpreting… Cont…
