The distribution of ice rafted debris (IRD) is an important parameter in glaciomarine sediments. A simple method is presented allowing
the determination of the IRD-content by counting the gravel fraction of the X-radiographs which are generally taken during sarnpling.
In comparison with sieve analyses corresponding values are obtained by both methods. However, more information can be made available in a shorter time by this method.
