Description :
Grain size analysis is a standard tool in the study of sediments. This paper presents a method for computer sampling experiments on variability in percentiles of a bulk grain size distributions (GSD), results for commonly used size percentiles as functions of sample volume when the underlying population probability density function (PDF) is log-normal, non-dimensional generalizations of the results, and guidelines for sampling practice.
