[auscope-geosciml] ParticleGeometryDescription

They were wanting a modified version of Folk (slightly muddy sand etc). It would be the ParticleGeometryDescription of EarthMaterial but on reflection this might be best handled as lithology terms - it's a bit of a grey area as to what is a description of lithology and what is a description of size....

would these terms be "sand, silt, mud, clay" etc.. ?

I remember a discussion with Bruce Johnson and Boyan Brodaric where is was argued that these terms are actually EarthMaterial.

Objet : [auscope-geosciml] ParticleGeometryDescription

A project for distributing marine geological data which is looking at using GeoSciML wants to be able to use terms to describe particle size. Could we add another attribute to ParticleGeometryDescription to allow for this: sizeTerm CGI_Term [0..1]? I think we discussed this briefly in Rome but with no conclusion....
