Abstract:

The section of a study of Bolinas Bay deals with the heavy mineralogy of the 0.175 -0.124 0.124 - 0.088 and 0.088 - 0.061 mm size fractions of 49 sediment samples. The treated size fractions were divided further by separation in the heavy liquid tetrabrom-ethane with a density of 2.95 gmscc. Particles with a density greater than 2.95 gmscc were called heavy. Particles with a density equal or less than 2.95 gmscc were designated light. Grain mounts were made of both the heavy and light particles of each size fraction on glass slides with Cadex mounting media. Author
