We studied the composition and roundness of medium sand from 18 small beaches of Elba Island. Six are pocket beaches less than 100 m long; the longest is 1.3 km long. The drainage basins of streams that supply the beaches are all less than 25 km2; most are less than 5 km2. Beach sands range widely in composition owing to diverse source terrane.

For the various drainage basins, comparison of the outcrop areas of the different types of bedrock with the compositions of beach sand grains yields the following conclusions: (1) the relative area of granodiorite...
