What is WATERFALL? Waterfall Sudden sheer descent of a stream Flowing over an erosion- resistant rock Sudden break in elevation Source of hydroelectric Often forms in mountain environment
Source of Hydroelectric
How are WATERFALLS formed ? Flat valley Erosion on soft layers of rock The soft rock is eroded deeper and deeper A different levels of height → Waterfall Cave behind the waterfalls
Diagram of Waterfall The hard resistant rock often collapses because the soft rock, which support the hard rock, is eroded.
Mountainous Waterfalls A glacier has deepened a major trunk valley The tributary streams discharge by falls or cascades Among the highest in the world
Famous Waterfalls Victoria Falls, World’s largest waterfalls, Zimbabwe Angel Falls, world’s highest waterfall, Venezuela
