An interpretation of the image shown in Fig. 10. Crests and troughs in a microdiorite dyke. Scratch marks superimposed on gentle convex stoss slopes form following the direction of the main flow. Pseudo-ripples crests develop perpendicularly to a secondary flow. The secondary flow could generate cavitation on steep concave lee slopes, forming pits as a consequence of the small crystal size and higher weatherability of microdiorite
