    UNIT 5 - BEDFORMS AND STRUCTURES: Upper plane bed and Antidunes

    Definition:

    -Happens at very fast current speeds (often on beaches from backwash) -Low relief, gentle slopes. Antidunes are nearly symmetrical. -Waves are in phase with antidunes -Antidunes are uncommon, migrate upstream even though sediment moves downstream UPPER PLANE BED - internal planar lamination with individual lminae ranging in thickness, intense sediment transport ANTIDUNES - higher velocities still - low undulating bedforms, 5m in length. Form v fast, shallow flows, migrate upstream during flow giving rise ot low angle <10* crossbedded directed upstreamdefinition

    5 Basic Compositional Attributed of Atom

    Definition:

    1) Atoms are composed of protons, electrons, and neutrons. 2*) Protons carry a positive charge, electrons carry a negative charge, and neutrons are neutral. Protons and electrons have charges of equal magnitude. 3*) Protons and neutrons reside in the nucleus and electrons move around the nucleus. 4) Protons and neutrons are nearly equal in mass, and are much heavier than electrons. As such, the majority of an atom’s mass is in its nucleus. 5) Atoms are neutral, with the number of protons equaling the number of electrons. The number of protons in the nucleus is termed the atomic number.definition
