Abstract in another language

We have studied experimentally the formation and evolution of sand ripples under water shear flow in a narrow annular channel. The amplitude of the sediment ripples vanishes at a critical value of the shear rate. Near this onset, a band of Fourier modes can be described by exponential growth functions. The growth rates vary linearly with the shear rate. On longer times the sand ripples display complex dynamics.
