Abstract

17 of intertidal and stream samples from Monterey Bay - Point Sur Area are analysed for grain size properties. These samples were taken to provide source area information for the study of the offshore sediments of the Central California Continental Shelf. The data are presented graphically as cumulative weight percent curves and histograms with respect to grain size. The statistical parameters median~ sorting coefficient, skewness and kurtosis are calculated for each sample.
