    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 upstream
