Abstract

Beach and dune quartz sands of the East Frisian Islands (Germany) demonstrate an irregular tendency of coarsening eastwards. The sands contain flint, feldspar and igneous fragments. The sediments of the offshore probably determine grain-size of the sands: the coarse fractions are derived from reworked Pleistocene sands at Borkum Rough and Wangerooge Ground.
