Material formed by accumulation of solid fragmental material deposited by air, water
or ice, or material that accumulated by other natural agents such as chemical precipitation
from solution or secretion by organisms. Includes both sediment and sedimentary rock.
Includes epiclastic deposits. All stated composition criteria are based on the mineral/
compound material (GeoSciML term)/particulate fraction of the material, irrespective
of porosity or the pore-fluid. No distinctions are made based on porosity or pore
fluid composition (except organic rich sediment in which liquid hydrocarbon content
may be considered).
