Abstract

Laboratory experiments were conducted in a large wave flume to study the effects transient wave conditions on ripple geometry. Two primary experiments of nine hours each were performed in which the order of two wave conditions (4m and 6m waves) was altered. Bed measurements over the region were acquired using acoustic equipment, and results of ripple equilibrium characteristics were compared.
