The size distribution of sand grains that form laminae in beaches was investigated by a microscopical study of thin-sections of naturally and artificially cemented beach sands. Median diameters of sand in the individual laminae range from much coarser to much finer than the median diameter of the entire sand samples, whereas the sorting coefficients in the individual laminae are generally smaller than for the whole sample.
