A channel or hollow worn in the earth by a current of water; a short deep portion of a torrent's bed when dry.
An eroded channel (generally at least 12 inches deep) which has deepened to the point that it cannot be removed by tillage.
A furrow, channel or miniature valley, usually with steep sides through which water commonly flows during and immediately after rains.
A very small channel formed by running water. Gullies hold water for brief periods of time after a rain storm or snow melt.
A steep-walled stream channel incised in the soil by accelerated erosion.
deep ditch cut by running water (especially after a prolonged downpour)
a form of water erosion and is distinguished from a rill by the fact that it cannot be obliterated by normal farm tillage operations, whereas a rill can be eliminated by such tillage
a geological feature that is created by running water such that it forms a deep ditch
a landform created by running water eroding sharply into a hillside
a narrow channel eroded into a hillslope when surface water flow increases in response to clearing and overuse of the land
a relatively deep, vertical-walled channel, recently formed within a valley where no well-defined channel previously existed
A wide but shallow ravine that runs down a mountainside. Can produce some interesting climbs in the winter.
Landform. A small, steep-sided valley or erosion channel (generally less than 30 feet across).
A natural watercourse formed in the earth's surface, especially a hillside, by the action of water. It only carries water after rain and its sides are generally steep. Usually one of the smallest branches of a drainage system, and often associated with erosive action.
this usually refers to a wide, shallow ravine on a mountainside.
narrow ravine; hollow worn in the earth by a current of water
( Ped.) A large intermittent water course with steep sides; an obstacle to agricultural machinery. ( SSSA).
A deep channel cut into the soil surface by accelerated erosion; a gully is so deep and/or wide that it cannot be smoothed out by tillage operations.
Large intermittent drainage channel developed from the erosion forces of drainages occuring from surface water runoff.
a small valley-like feature GLYU
an erosional channel or ravine.
large eroded channels. See also Erosion.
A large eroded channel formed in the soil as a result of water runoff.
A deep ditch or channel cut by running water; a small, narrow ravine
A shallow steep-sided valley that may occur naturally or be formed by accelerated erosion.
