EROSION DUE TO FLOOD



Example Type:
Earth Erosion

Information:
Location: River's Edge
Record Date: 08.22
Season: Summer
Elevation: 500 Feet

Notes:
This photo shows the dried edge of a floodway. During the spring months the flowing water pulls topsoil away from the bank and takes it downstream. As the soil is taken away, this is what is left. This process of erosion will continue as long as there is extreme seasonal rainfall.
