Students need to do initial background reading on particle size analyses and in particular for this assignment Gale and Hoare (1991). In class, students work in groups measuring three sets of clasts. From the measurement of the relative lengths of the three orthogonal axes, the students calculate various shape elements. The activity continues by generating various shape plots and interpreting the data in the context of where the clast set came from (beach, glacial, fluvial or alluvial fan deposits).
