Studious readers may care to immure themselves in the nearest geological library for the next year checking references. Out and out sceptics may prefer to spend the next ten years in the field. Let the rest read on remembering that all generalizations are dangerous including this one. REFERENCES Ager, D. , 1963. Principles oj Paleoecology. McGraw-Hill, New York, p. 371. Allen, J. R. , 1964.

Curves of offshore wells seldom show sufficient amplitude to be used as grain-size curves. The second geophysical tool which may be used for this purpose is the gamma log. This records the radioactivity of the formation as the sonde is passed along the borehole. This is essentially related to the amount of clay present, and this largely occurs in the clay minerals. Thus the gamma reading tends to increase in proportion to the amount of clay present in the sediment, and as already stated, this tends to increase with decreasing particle size.
