A model describing impurity transport in parametrically excited capillary ripples is proposed. It is shown that chaotic motion of impurity particles is possible at regular ripple modulation and that anomalous diffusion of impurity arises in a certain range of parameters. In this case it is expedient to employ generalized diffusion exponents for the description of the impurity motion.
