I’m very curious about these “ripple marks” that I have seen posted a few times on the forum. From what little research I have been able to do (so far...) they seem to be caused by wind or water erosion of the rock. However, there is mention of them possibly being fossilized rippled sediment from the floor of a body of water. So... are these geological erosions or some type of fossilized evidence of water movement? I can see how the erosion would work, but wouldn’t the sediment be compressed during lithification/fossilization and destroy the details if it was from a body of water millions of years old? Ripple Marks Mention of Fossilization
I have had too much time on my hands and have been looking at this forum to much. I started to see fossil every where. I found some ripples bed fossil in the Wirrel in the uk. But can anyone see anything else hear. Thanks you for all your great help as always. Bobby
