Jun 21, 2010 ... A new study demonstrates how researchers can use a channel carved by floodwaters pouring over the dam of a flooded reservoir as a laboratory to test scientific theories of how such canyons are formed. The research could help to inform the hydrological histories of Earth and Mars by indicating the kind of ...

Nov 1, 2016 ... On Earth, canyon formation is a simple, yet lengthy process that involves rivers slowly carving into the Earth's surface, carrying away layer after layer of river bed until canyons eventually form. The sediment that is scraped off the riverbed simply washes downstream to larger bodies of water like lakes or ...

Abstract Catastrophic outburst floods carved amphitheater-headed canyons on Earth and Mars, and the steep headwalls of these canyons suggest that some formed by upstream headwall propagation through waterfall erosion processes. Because topography evolves in concert with water flow during ...
