How do sedimentary beds form?

The new ELI this week is 'How do sedimentary beds form? – and why can we see them? Demonstrating how the beds in sedimentary rocks are deposited'.

Bedding is a common feature of sedimentary rocks, but the ways in which bedding formed and the reasons why bedding is such a common feature of sedimentary rocks is not often considered. By demonstrating how bedding forms, in the classroom or field, classes can gain a much better understanding of this very widespread sedimentary process.
Many activities about sedimentary rocks and sedimentary structures can be found on our website.
