The Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM) recently released "Bedforms and Cross-Bedding in Animation," a publication on DVD by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists David Rubin and Carissa Carter. The DVD—which made its debut at the Geological Society of America's annual meeting in Philadelphia, Pa., in October 2006—includes approximately 100 movies of bedforms and cross-bedding, an interactive user interface for selecting and viewing movies, a printable 195-page Portable Document Format (PDF) file of the second edition of Rubin's "Cross-Bedding, Bedforms, and Paloeocurrents" (the first edition was published by SEPM in 1987), and documentation for Matlab® programming code for modeling bedforms and cross-bedding. A scaled-down version of some of these materials has been posted on the USGS Western Coastal and Marine Geology Team Web site with the help of team Webmistress Laura Torresan (see: Bedforms and Cross-Bedding in Animation).

The full reference for the new publication is:

Rubin, David M., and Carter, Carissa L., 2006, Bedforms and cross-bedding in animation: Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM) Atlas Series, no. 2, DVD.
