A FORTRAN program designed to simplify and duplicate the mental processes which lead to an interpretation of a depositional setting is presented. In order to simplify the geologic interpretation of clastic depositional environments, seven general characteristics can be recognized. By defining which features are exclusive of a specific depositional setling a simplified basis for environmental interpretation can be established. Given a list of such features, a series of depositional environment eliminations can be performed, yielding a listing of the remaining possible environments.
