English: A Gully or Ravine is an erosion landform created by running surface flow water, resulting in erosion cutting into the soil, creating erosion channels.
  • Often they are formed on hillside slopes, and in natural or constructed drainage swales.
  • Gullies resemble large ditches or small canyons, and can range from one to dozens of meters/yards in depth and width.
  • When gully formation is occurring, the water flow rate can be substantial, accelerating cutting action deeper into the landscape.
