    Grain size – There is a standard grain size chart for sediments and sedimentary rocks, termed the Wentworth or Udden-Wentworth scale as it is based on the work of Udden () as refined by Wentworth ().In the version shown in Table , a column of phi (ϕ) equivalents (from Krumbein, ) is included (ϕ) = – log 2 grain diameter in mm). The Wentworth classification, . The work Sandstone landforms (Young, Wray & Young ) provides a global view of our current understanding of macro- and microscale sandstone landforms and their associated geomorphic processes.

Sandstone is a type of rock made from sediment — a sedimentary rock.

The sediment particles are clasts, or pieces, of minerals and fragments of rock, thus sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock. It is composed mostly of sand particles, which are of medium size; therefore, sandstone is a medium-grained clastic sedimentary rock.

Weathering and erosion of sandstone produces unique landforms1, 2 such as arches, alcoves, pedestal rocks and pillars.Sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized ( to 2 mm) mineral particles or rock fragments (clasts) or organic material.

Most sandstone is composed of quartz or feldspar (both silicates) because they are the most resistant minerals to weathering processes at the Earth's surface, as seen in the Goldich dissolution uncemented sand.
