Marinna Martini, of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Woods Hole Field Center, was invited to give a talk to two classes at the Tisbury School in Vineyard Haven, MA, on June 13, 2003.

She showed the students the differences between clay, silt, fine sand, and coarse sand; how we trap those particles; and how some of our instruments work.
