What depositional environments would you expect to find well-rounded cobbles and why would they be there? Name at least two different depositional settings.

Answer the three questions pertaining to different sedimentary settings and processes. The Journal should be at least one page in length and include diagrams/pictures to explain your geological answers.

1) What depositional environments would you expect to find well-rounded cobbles and why would they be there? Name at least two different depositional settings.

3) In what depositional environment(s) would you find ripple marks and what causes them to form? What can they tell us.
