A bedform is a depositional feature whose genesis is through the action of a forcing fluid (e.g. air or water) resulting in the movement of the granular material, manifesting into characteristic surface morphology indicative of the flow parameters in operationOn Earth, 2D bedforms are defined as having crestlines and constant crest-trough depths relative to the surrounding surface level. In cross-section, 2D bedforms have identical forests and bounding surface striles. 3D bedforms have sinuous crestlines and troughs (in plan or elevation) or variable across-crest profiles giving 3D cross-bedding.
