Ripple, flaser and lenticular bedding are well known, but for describing profiles, they are not sufficiently defined and subdivided. It is, therefore, the intent of the following text to present such a definition and classification.
The classification contains the following main bedding types and intermediary types (Fig.1):
- 1Cross-bedding with flasers.
- 2Flaser bedding, subdivided in: (a) simple flaser bedding; (b) bifurcated flaser bedding; (c) wavy flaser bedding; (d) bifurcated wavy flaser bedding.
- 3Wavy bedding.
- 4Lenticular bedding with thick or flat lenses, subdivided in: (a) continuous lenticular bedding (with connected lenses); (b) broken lenticular bedding (with single lenses).
