Crushed quartz was subjected to wind, ball mill, and shaking-table action to simulate eolian and beach conditions. Electron microphotographs of these surfaces were then compared with those of grain surfaces which had been frosted naturally, and the correspondence between them was good. Thus, the transportation history of many sand deposits may be identified by this technique.
