Soil and sediment analysis is essential for human beings, which provides fingerprints to their origin. The main categories of soil and sediment analysis include hydrology and geology studies. Particle size and shape are challenging in soil and sediment analysis. Why? Soil samples are polymorphic and always cover a wide size distribution range. The Bettersizer S3 Plus analyzes the particle size over a wide range from 0.01 μm to 3.5 mm, fully meeting the needs of soil and sediment size measurements. This application note will focus on three different applications covering lunar regolith, desert, and marine sediments and explore the differences of particle size and shapes in three samples.
