Continental Shelf Sediment Dynamics

Figure 1: Vertical profiles of uwrms, the root-mean-square wave-band velocity orthogonal to the ripple crests in the 1999 experiment at LEO-15, normalized by the rms velocity at 35 cm range. Profiles are over the leading and trailing crests and intervening trough of a single ripple migrating beneath the sensor.
