fig10thu.jpg (66541 bytes)Figure 11. Graph showing the variations of four grain size components with depth. The lower beach face (roughly 0-25 m depth) is characterized by the fine sand fraction exceeding 40%. The inner shelf (roughly 25-55 m depth) is characterized by the very-fine sand fraction mostly exceeding 40%. The middle shelf (roughly >55 m) is characterized by the silt and clay content exceeding 25%.  Click on the figure to view a larger image. Sample locations shown in Figure 1.
