The heavy mineralogy of the sand fraction for beach samples reported by Sayles 1966 and 10 new offshore samples from South Monterey Bay was determined optically. For each sample the percentage of the more diagnostic transparent minerals is plotted graphically in order of persistence zircon, garnet, biotite, apatite, clinozoisite and epidote, lawsonite, green hornblende, oxy-horneblende, glaucophane, sphene, zoisite, augite, jadeite, hypersthene, enstatite, and tremolite and actinolite. Additional data on accessory transparent minerals, composite grains rock fragments and opaque minerals are listed with each graph. An updated bibliography is presented to include all new work on the geology and sediment of Monterey Bay. Author
