Laser diffraction analysis of the disintegration of aeolian sedimentary aggregates in water

Mason, Joseph A; Greene, Richard; Joeckel, Robert M


A new method for the analysis of aggregate disintegration in water was tested using aeolian sediment samples. The response of aeolian sedimentary aggregates to wetting and mechanical energy has important implications for the immobilization of aeolian sediments by rainfall and their susceptibility to post-depositional erosion by water. Repeated laser diffraction analysis of a single sample circulating in deionized water provides a detailed view of the changes in particle size distribution as...[Show more]
