Field and laboratory studies of ripples and dunes formed in sand by unidirectional water currents show for coarse and very fine sand that the ripple index is related to median particle size and to flow intensity as measured by a dimensionless shear stress parameter. However, for medium-grained sand (0.25-0.50 mm.) End_Page 476------------------------------ the ripple index is approximately constant and is independent of flow intensity. For medium-grained sand statistical properties of the… CONTINUE READING
