CONTENTS * 1 Formation * 2 Researchers * 3 Types * 4 Examples * 5 Image gallery * 6 See also * 7 References FORMATION Formation of a waterfall Waterfalls are commonly formed in the upper course of a river in steep mountains. Because of their landscape position, many waterfalls occur over bedrock fed by little contributing area, so they are ephemeral and only occur during rainstorms. The further downstream, the more perennial a waterfall can be. It is even possible for waterfalls to occur far downstream due to transient discontinuities in a river's longitudinal profile caused by climatic changes and anthropogenic activities

It varied in length from country to country, from city to city, and sometimes from trade to trade. Its length was usually between 250 mm and 335 mm and was generally, but not always, subdivided into 12 inches or 16 digits . The United States is the only industrialized nation that uses the international foot and the survey foot (a customary unit of length ) in preference to the meter in its commercial, engineering, and standards activities
