This report is available as a pdf below


This series of manuals on techniques describes procedures for planning and executing specialized work in water-resources investigations. The material is grouped under major subject headings called books and further subdivided into sections and chapters; Section C of Book 5 is on sediment analysis.

The unit of publication, the chapter, is limited to a narrow-field of subject matter. This format permits flexibility in revision and publication as the need arises.

Provisional drafts of chapters are distributed to field offices of the U.S. Geological Survey for their use. These drafts are subject to revision because of experience in use or because of advancement in knowledge, techniques, or equipment. After the technique described in a chapter is sufficiently developed, the chapter is published and is sold by the U.S. Geological Survey, 1200 South Eads Street, Arlington, VA 22202 (authorized agent of Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office).
