Chapter 13 - SEDIMENT MEASUREMENTS

particles, like sand, have no characteristic shape; their size is between those of clay and sand with diameters ranging from 4 µm to 62 µm. Since the smallest mesh size of commercially available sieves is about 40 µm, the sizes of clay and small silt particles cannot be determined by sieving, and sedimentation techniques are used instead.
