Systems that are characterized by large numbers of similar components that interact locally have been successfully modeled with the help of cellular automata. A cellular automaton is a logic rule that updates conditions in a grid of locations as a function only of the conditions in the direct neighborhood of these locations. The derivation of an appropriate cellular automaton rule for the genesis of current ripples serves as an example of the usefulness and the application of cellular automata in sedimentary and stratigraphic modeling, in particular where self-organizing processes are involved.
