Mechanical analyses of pure calcareous sediment from the Bermuda Banks show a correlation between mechanical composition and topographic location. Beach sands are well sorted and uniform, lagoon sediment is fine and slightly less well sorted, and the sands of the exposed boundary reef are coarse. The size frequency distributions are similar to those to be expected in inorganic sediment produced by the sea in like environments.
