Can Grain Size predict a sample’s potential for contaminant loading?


We live sediment.  Sometimes we even dream about it.

If you need thousands of Grain Size analyses or just a few, Aqua Survey can collect the samples and perform Sieve or Hydrometer analyses for you.

“Can Grain Size predict a sample’s potential for contaminant loading?”

The answer is YES.

A sample’s grain size can be a good indicator of contaminant loading. The amount of silt and clay in large part determines the level of potential contamination in a sample.
