Up: Oh: Transmissivity In Fine
The sedimentation process has a tendency towards randomness as well as
blockiness. A Markov chain can be a good stochastic
model to simulate these features. The merit of the model is its simplicity,
for the layers of M states, it can be described
only by M parameters(Godfrey et al., 1980).
