Abstract
Size-frequency distributions were generated for sediment from three oyster reefs and two non-reef environments. Reef sediments contained 10 percent gravel (shells), probably more sand, and less silt and clay than non-reef sediments. Reef sediments had leptokurtic, and non-reef sediments had platykurtic, size distributions. Grainsize modes in a given reef match fairly well with grainsize modes for sediment recovered from living oyster shells and dead shells. Sand and silt modes, mean size, standard deviation and skewness did not discriminate reef and non-reef sediments. (Author)
