The Soft And Hard Rock Of The Waterfall
- Nov 01, 2017 -

Fault Falls. Such waterfalls are caused by faults formed by tectonic movements (horizontal or vertical motion). such as the Yellow River Hukou waterfall. When the multistage fault occurs in the form of Graben or Horst, a multistage waterfall can be formed.Waterfall

When a river or stream is marked by a sharp steep slope or cliff at the longitudinal section of a riverbed, a vertical or near-vertical flow of water, in geology, caused by geologic tectonic movements such as faults or depressions, and volcanic eruptions, which cause abrupt interruption of the river, and the erosion and dissolution of the rock by water can also cause great topography difference, thereby forming a waterfall.Waterfall

The rock that makes up the bottom of the riverbed is not consistent, and is badly eroded by the river's impact, forming a steep ridge, and the hard rock is relatively overhanging, and the river flows here, plunging and 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.Waterfall

The waterfall is called drop in geology, where the river falls vertically as it flows through faults and depressions. 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

Over time, slowly the rocks hardened, and later formed a wall in the river. This is how China's Yellowstone Falls are formed. 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. The river crosses many rocky facies boundaries. If you flow from a hard rock bed to a softer rock bed, it is likely that the erosion of the softer rock bed will be quicker, and the slope of the two rock types is steeper. This happens when the river changes direction and exposes the intersection of different rocky riverbed Waterfall
