Beach and Shoreline Sands From Around the World
by Elizabeth H. Kennair and Bruce Railsback

This page provides links to more detailed images of sands from the southeastern U.S. Atlantic coast. Note that the sands grade from siliciclastic sands to the north to carbonate sands to the south. Within the carbonates, the sands change from containing mostly colorful freshly broken fragments of mollusk shells to containing mostly white bored grains of more diverse biological origins
        Click on the image of a sand to visit the page showing more of that sand. That page in turn has an icon for a link to a microscopic image of the same sand. Be sure to see the microscopic images - they're the highlight of the show!
