Well sorted sediment is found where on earth ?

    most places where sediment is deposited from a fluid (air or water, typically)?  The rarer condition is poorly sorted sediment.  Requires lack of much transport in a fluid, so either only a short distance of transport (inadequate time to segregate by size or mass) or transport by some other mechanism than in a fluid (no mechanism for segregation by mass or size).

    Depositional environments include beach and windblown sands, deep-sea clays and silts, and distal lacustrine sediments.  Also, any fresh snowpack is a well-sorted sedimentary deposit.
