Figure 58. Structure formed by straight-crested longitudinal bedforms with superimposed, sinuous, out-of-phase transverse bedforms.Structure formed by sinuous bedforms that fluctuate in migration speed and asymmetry. This depositional situation is virtually identical to the one shown in Figure 22b, except that those bedforms have straight crestlines, whereas the ones shown here have sinuous crestlines.
