GIANT CURRENT RIPPLE MARKS: SATELLITE OVERVIEW OF THE NEW LOCATIONS ON THE EARTH. A.N. Rudoy 1 and S.S. Chernomorets 2 , 1 Tomsk State University, Russia, ru- [email protected] , 2 Department of Geography of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia, devdo- [email protected] . Introduction: Giant current ripple marks usually emerge following rapid outbursts of large periglacial and rock-dammed lakes given extremely high intensity of flow. They represent morphological and genetic macro-analog of sand current ripplet. We have produced analysis of known locations of giant current ripples and geographic conditions in which emergence of current ripples is possible at today’s stage of active degradation of glaciers and mass forma- tion of large periglacial lakes. Remote research was carried out – satellite image interpretation for various mountainous regions of the world – to discover other parts of the giant current rip- ples terrain. Discussion: Emergence of the exotic relief of giant current ripples is connected with out- burst of large lakes dammed by glacial or landslide dikes. After the outburst, the river fac- es extremely high intensity of flow for some time, and a terrain in the form of diluvium or flood dunes with height of dozens of meters emerges [1]. Until recently, three areas of giant ripples were thoroughly examined: basin of Co- lumbia River in the north-west of the USA, Altai and Tuva in Russia [1,3]. The age of the ripples in these areas goes back to the end of the late

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
