Introduction Sediment is derived primarily from natural weathering of rock and is an assemblage of individual mineral grains that are then deposited by some physical agent, such as water, wind, ice, or gravity (Fetter, ). The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) samples sediments and collects data on the amount of sediment in selected waterways.
