Similarly, the results of various sampling and calculation methods are compared and evaluated, namely: radium, radio-ionic, ionic, ionic and thorium, beril, protactinium-ionic and radio carbon methods. On the basis of such analyses, the most dependable rates of sedimentation for red clay are found.
