For normal and platykurtic distributions with the larger sample, n = 30, the modified Z-variance test correctly rejected the null hypothesis more often than the Levene Test.
In the model analysis with respect to shape below both leptokurtic (e.g., Laplace) and platykurtic distributions (e.g., quasiuniform) are considered.
3 show evidence that all cohesive horizons (except P1 Bt 1) contain sand distributions that follows mesokutic to platykurtic distributions. In these horizons, the relatively homogeneous distribution of sands of different sizes confirms the poor degree of sorting.
