Figure 2-17. Unidirectional small-scale ripple cross-stratification with mud drapes indicating repetitive tractive tidal current flow in one direction alternating with slack-water conditions. Curviplanar scour surfaces in between or truncating the ripple sets may have resulted from erosion in front of superimposed ripple forms and/or stronger tidal current events.
