Abstract

The morphology and processes of formation and maintenance of waterfalls are more varied and complex than is suggested by the simple caprock-undercutting model that is closely identified with Niagara Falls. The dominant process of retreat of two buttressed waterfalls near Cowra, NSW, seems to be failure along jointplanes at the lips of the waterfalls. In the case of the larger of the two waterfalls, this process is enhanced by the formation and subsequent destruction of potholes at the waterfall lip
