Bedforms and Cross-Bedding in Animation. Explore the interactive and animated: Cross-Bedding, Bedforms, and Paleocurrents. by David M. Bedforms and Cross-Bedding in Animation by David M. Rubin and Carissa L. Carter U.S. Geological Survey Santa Cruz, CA, USA. With rain the energy of the water running steeply downhill could be large and could carry large amounts of material! Look at the cartoon on the next page to get the whole history and placement and also try the link below to a little animation.
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.

Below are some screen captures taken from animations of cross-bedding formation that you can download from the U.S. Geological Survey.
In geology, the sedimentary structures known as cross-bedding refer to horizontal units that are internally composed of inclined layers. MATLAB Code for Simulating Bedforms and Cross-Bedding U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey. In animation sequences, this number is automatically Filename: of2005-1272. In geology, the sedimentary structures known as cross-bedding are the horizontal units that are internally composed of inclined layers. This is a case in geology in which the original depositional layering is tilted, and the tilting is not a result of post-depositional deformation.
