1378. Headward erosion : 1 - The erosion of a stream bed by the action of scour at the bottom of a vertical cliff or waterfall where the flow of the stream plunges, causing undermining of the cliff and its movement upstream, so that the deepened section extends upstream. It differs from cataract action in as much as only a small flow may be necessary to keep it going, or accumulated by subsurface flow. 2 - See 6437
