Sand

Unvegetated substrates consist of four main classifications: sand, hard sand, silty sand and silt.. 

Sand is a commonly encountered unconsolidated substrate but is most common in high to semi-exposed environments. This category represents the coarser end of a scale of sediments from silt to sand. Sand is generally characterised by a distinct second echo on the sounder trace from single beam acoustic sampling.
