Abstract:
Research of the characteristics of sediment grain size at Gapang beach, Sabang, Province of Aceh in March 2017 has been done. This study aims to determine the size of grains of sediment in the coast of Gapang, Sabang, Aceh Province. The 4 location of the sampling determined with  coring method and granulometry analysis using multilevel sifter method. The results showed that the grain size of sediment at Station 1 was dominated by gravel with an average weight percentage of 35.5%, at Station 2 and 3 dominated by gravel with an average percentage weight rating of 41.56% and 45.39% and at Station 4 is dominated by gravel with an average percentage weight of 46.88%. Based on the value of grain size of sediment indicates that the coast of gapang sea has the potential to experience sediment deposition.
Key words: Sediment; coring; multilevel sifter
