Excerpt: The problem in studying deep-sea sedimentation is basically that one obtains a sample of sediment and one would like to take it apart in such a way that you can tell where the different constituents came from, and from that learn something about the mechanisms - atmospheric, marine, fluvial - which were responsible for bringing the different constituents to where you find them. To this end we have used mineralogy - call it clay mineralogy - to analyze the fine grain size fraction. On suspended particulate matter filtered from sea water we are beginning to use scanning electron microscopy with energy-dispersive x-ray analysis. We use size frequency distributions as a means of characterizing the material. I will describe briefly two techniques that I have used in studying particulate matter in deep-sea sediments, suspended in sea water, and in atmospheric dusts.
