Abstract

Three-dimensional brick-pattern streaming forms above a model of two-dimensional ripple marks under the oscillatory water motion. This type of streaming may possibly be responsible for forming the brick-pattern ripples of Bagnold (1946) . A structure of flow above the brick-pattern ripples is suggested.
