A sedimentary rock is formed.

Sediment rocks

Grains can move closer together through a process called compaction, where external pressure is applied to sediment layers, squeezing out excess water and air between the grains. This results in the grains packing more closely together, increasing the density and reducing the volume of the sediment.

Roundness of sediment grains can provide information about the distance the grains have traveled from their source. Well-rounded grains have likely traveled a long distance and experienced multiple episodes of erosion and transport. On the other hand, angular grains are typically indicative of shorter transport distances and limited weathering.

Permeability is inversely related to the size of sediment grains, meaning that as the grain size increases, permeability decreases. This is because smaller grains are packed more closely together, leaving less space for water and fluids to flow through, resulting in lower permeability. Conversely, larger grains have more space between them, allowing for greater permeability.
