Abstract

This paper shows that Sneed and Folk ternary diagrams provide an appropriate standard method of representing data and a rational basis for the choice of descriptive indices and analytical methods. Such diagrams have the unique quality of representing the variation of particle shapes without bias or distorsion. The use of ternary diagrams in studies of clast shape is illustrated using data from Slettmarkbreen, Norway
