Although this data shows the mean average grainsize of the nine surface samples collected within the lagoon, much variation
in grainsize and sorting was seen within the sediments. It may be better to sub-divide the samples into those that were collected
from the 'Deep-Lagoon', and those that were collected from the 'Patch Reef Dominated' areas.
Parameters: Average mean grainsize (phi), average sorting coefficient (phi), dominant coarse biota, dominant fine biota.
