Definitions for "CROSS-BEDDING"
Inclined beds in a sedimentary rock that were formed at the time of deposition by currents of wind or water in the direction in which the bed slopes downward.
In sedimentary rocks, inclined layers of sedimentation resulting from the progressive deposition of granular materials over a sloping surface. The layers are within a single bed between true bedding planes. Cross-bedding lends textural and color pattern to building stone.
