Abstract : A sediment size computer program has been developed to reduce the time involved in the manual calculation of statistical parameters. The program computes these parameters utilizing raw weights derived from analysis. The program is also designed to include pertinent field data, and compositional data determined in the laboratory. Details of the source program are given, along with instruction as to data card content and organization. An explanation of the data printout sheet is also included. (Author)
