The Cause Of The Waterfall
- Sep 12, 2017 -

    Waterfall (waterfall), refers to the river or stream through the riverbed Longitudinal section of the significant steep slope or cliff, into a vertical or near vertical pouring down the water, in geology, is caused by faults or depressions and other geological tectonic movements and volcanic eruptions, such as the surface changes resulting in a sudden interruption of the river, In addition, the erosion and dissolution of the water on the rocks can also cause a great topography difference, thus forming a waterfall.Waterfall

    The cause of the waterfall: the soft and hard degree of the rock that makes up the bottom of the riverbed is not consistent, and it is eroded badly by the river, forming a steep ridge, and the hard rock is relatively overhanging, and the river flows here, and plunging down, forming a waterfall. It can also be said that the river runs in the river, and when it encounters the steep ridge of the riverbed, it falls down and forms a waterfall. In addition, there are landslides, faults, lava blockage, glaciers and other functions, the formation of waterfalls. The flow of water suddenly, approximately vertical fall, the waterfall is called drop in geology, that is, the river flows through the fault, depression and other areas of vertical fall.Waterfall

    In the time of the river, the waterfall is a temporary feature that eventually disappears. The rate of erosion depends on the height of a particular waterfall, its flow, the type and structure of the rock, and other factors. In some cases, the position of the waterfall is dissipated upstream by a cliff or steep ridge, while in other cases this erosion tends to be deep and obliquely cut across the entire reach of the waterfall. Over time, any one or two of these factors are in effect, and the inevitable trend of the river is to destroy any waterfall that may be formed.Waterfall

    The energy of the river will eventually build a relatively smooth, concave-oriented longitudinal profile. Even when the gravel of the river erosion tool does not exist, the energy that can be used to erode the base of the waterfall is also very large. One of the characteristics associated with any waterfall of any size, also related to flow and height, is the presence of a falling pool, which is a basin dug out in the channel below the drop. In some cases, the depth of the plunge may approximate the height of the steep cliffs that cause the waterfall. The plunge pool eventually caused the collapse of the cliffs and the waterfall to recede. The cliff, which caused the drop, will continue to collapse under the powerful impact of the water, causing the waterfall to retreat upstream and lower its altitude, eventually leading to the disappearance of the waterfall.Waterfall

   In ancient times a large molten rock was squeezed from below, and over time, slowly the rock hardened and then formed a wall in the river. This is how China's Yellowstone Falls are formed. The ancient glaciers cut into the valleys, forming cliffs on both sides, and the waterfall was created. In addition, the movement of the Earth's surface further heightened the plateau, and the river was on its edge, thus forming a waterfall on the plateau.Waterfall
