Abstract : Eighteen profiles on beaches in the vicinity of San Francisco were occupied at intervas of 2 to 6 months from JULY !(%+ TO December 1958. Seven of these profiles are north of the Golden Gate and eleven are south. Individual beaches differ from one another and the same beach differs from season to season and from place to place at any given time. The data collected neither support nor disprove the notion that beach sand is statistically finer and better sorted in summer than in winter. Likewise, the data do not support the contention that finer grained sands are better sorted. (Author)
