Beach and Shoreline Sands From Around the World

by Elizabeth H. Kennair and L. Bruce Railsback

This page shows siliciclastic sands from passive continental margins. We've divided them into those from glaciated areas and those from non-glaciated areas. One would expected the sands from non-glaciated areas to be richer in quartz. Detailed mineralogical analysis of these sands will likely be a project in a UGA sandstone petrology class someday.
