Quick Reference

An electronic measuring device used mainly for determining the grain-size distribution in silt- and clay-sized sediments (see particle size). The coulter counter measures the volume of the individual particles in a suspension and is particularly useful for determining the size of mud flocculates (see flocculation). It can also be used for sand-sized sediments.
