A search query can be a title of the book, a name of the author, . Defining ripple cross-laminae and asymmetric ripples. Current ripple marks, unidirectional ripples, or asymmetrical ripple marks are asymmetrical in profile, with a gentle up-current slope and a steeper down-current slope. The down-current slope is the angle of repose, which depends on the shape of the commonly form in fluvial and aeolian depositional environments, Catenary: Catenary ripples generate cross-laminae that are curvy but have a unidirectional swoop. They show a pattern similar to what a repeated "W" would look like. Like the sinuous ripples, this form of ripple is created by unidirectional flow with the dip at an angle to the flow as well as downstream.

      Cross bedding is a sedimentary structure of "stacked" layers that are inclined, although they are contained in larger beds that may be horizontal. (Michael C. Rygel via Wikimedia Commons) These beds are roughly horizontal, but the inclined stri. The low-angle cross-bedding shows dips towards ESE and WSW, and minor towards N and NE, whereas current ripples have paleocurrents towards S and WNW. A thin (≪ m) interval of erosive-based, trough cross-stratified sandstone is observed below the low-angle lithofacies, displaying a patchy distribution, and locally showing organic matter : Maximiliano Paz, Juan José Ponce, Luis A.

Cross-Bedding, Bedforms, and Paleocurrents Author(s) David M. Rubin; David M. Rubin Images range from the complicated, which will be of interest to sedimentologists who have had experience interpreting cross-bedding or studying the behavior of bedforms, to simpler illustrations the can convey an understanding of the origin of cross-bedding.

Cross-bedding is an important indicator of depositional environments, paleoflow velocities, and paleocurrent directions. Although most studies of and paleocurrents book have been directed toward determining ancient flow conditions or toward basic research to enable such applied studies, a second reason to study cross-bedding is equally important.

This publication is a DVD housed in a hardcover book cover. The DVD includes a PDF of the 2nd Edition of Cross-Bedding, Bedforms and Paleocurrents and an interactive program which shows the formation of bedforms in animation and allows the user to select from subsets of controlling variables to view the resulting strata as the conditions change.

Thin sets are deposited by small migrating bedforms such as ripples, small dunes, or small antidunes, and thick sets are deposited by larger dunes, antidunes, bars, or other large bedforms (Allen, ; Harms and Fahnestock, ).

Cross-strata are a natural record of transported sediment and are therefore useful for understanding the behavior. SEPM Atlas #2 Available on DVD only. Presented in a hardback book cover.

Cross-strata are layers of sediment that are inclined relative to the base and top of the set in which the inclined layers are grouped. Each group is called a set of cross-strata or a cross-stratified bed (Figure C79).Individual cross-strata can be classified (McKee and Weir, ) as cross-laminae (1 cm thick).

Cross-Bedding. Cross beds form from running water. As the water flows, it creates bedforms, such as ripples or dunes, on the floor of the channel. Sediment deposited on the downcurrent side of these bedforms is deposited at an angle--not horizontally. If preserved, the layering is also inclined and dips in the direction of water transport.
