Abstract

Size analyses of sand samples from the islands and sand flats indicate that each island shows a separate grain size population. Comparison with sediment maps of the adjacent seafloor suggests that the islands were formed by wave action. The increasing angularity towards the north reflects the shape sorting of the sediments on the seafloor. (AIS).
