Abstract

Analysis of the shape of sedimentary particles can provide information about their transport history and aid facies differenciation and the characterization of depositional environments. Triangular diagrams, emplying ratios of the 3 orthogonal particle axes, have been advocated as the most appropriate method for unbiased predentation of primary particle shape data. A speadsheet method for the production of these diagrams is described. Clast data-sets from a range of environments are presented using this method. An alternative use of the spreadsheet for the presentation of sedimentary fabric shape is suggested
