..., dominated the sediment transport and deposition at the shallow-water delta front, where the effluent flow mixes with lake water. The distributary channels show characteristics of repeatedly occurred erosion, scouring, filling, and reoccupation. We argue that the depositional characteristics are associated...

.... The erosive school of thoughts holds that potholes form due to: mechanical scouring of loosely consolidated cumulates by magmatic convection currents ( Schmidt, 1952 ) or crystal-rich slurries ( Maier et al., 2013 ); remelting and dissolution of cumulates by hot/superheated melt replenishing...

Mapping of outcrop-scale surfaces and sets of cross-strata between these surfaces for the Jurassic Page Sandstone near Page, Arizona, USA, demonstrates that the stratigraphic signature of autogenic behavior is captured by variable scour depths and subsequent fillings, whereas...

Here, we outline scaling relationships for the expected depth and length scales of autogenic scour resulting from non-uniform...

... seepage through the glacial outwash foundation as well as through a network of open joints within the left bedrock abutment. Seepage in the bedrock abutment could erode/scour the dam embankment at the bedrock contact, potentially leading to dam failure. To lower this potential risk of dam failure...
