Abstract

In this work, 4 map algebra (MA) algorthms are written in a GIS environment to automatically produce maps depicting the spatial distribution of sediment texture classes based on the most frequently used grain size TDs : the Shepard classification and Flemming classification for sand-silt-clay components, and the Folk et al. classification and Blair and McPherson classification for sand-gravel-mud components. The proposed method allows rapid assessments by producing map distributions of the parameters most widely used in sedimentology
