Pot Holes

Potholes are round / oval shaped holes in the bedrock of a river bed.

They are formed when sediment and other material carried by a river scours the bed. Where depressions exist in the channel floor turbulent flow can cause pebbles to spin around and erode hollows through abrasion/corraision. As the holes gets bigger even bigger debris can become trapped in the pothole and this material further supports erosion.
