    This paper deals with the different kinds of ripple marks, which are found on the North Sea beaches of the Dutch coast. They are treated according to the classification given in an earlier communication (Van Straaten, 1953). Their distribution, directions and possible modes of formation are discussed, and two typical sections across the beach of Ameland are presented. Finally, a new type of ripple mark, formed by the wind, is described under the name "(wind-) antiripplets".
