Abstract

Tracers are essentially sediment particles that can be easily identified within a large mass of sediment grains having different characteristics. The concept is widely used in sedimentary petrography, where particular mineral assemblages are inherited from the characteristics of the provenance basin. Another approach is to use sediment from the environment to be studied and tag it using an artificial agent (e.g., paint, radioactivity, RFID transponders
