The effect of grain orientation on Fourier shape analysis
Journal of Sedimentary Petrology (September 1973) 43 (3): 867-869

Abstract

The Fourier shape analysis of fifty unconsolidated sand sized quartz grains in their maximum projection plane were compared to the shape of these same grains in orientations that depart radically from the maximum projection plane. The results indicated that the shape information carried by quartz grains while in their plane of maximum projection does not differ significantly from the shape information carried by such grains while in other planes of orientation.
