    Hi
    I was wondering how a gorge forms? It is for our revision study periods in geography.
    Thanx!
    it's when a theres a waterfall and the bottom part of the cliff (the waterfall falls from) is soft rock which erodes as the water hits it. this forms a plunge pool. the top half of the cliff is hard rock, which doesn't erode so easily amd so when the bottom half erodes the top half collapses in to the plunge pool..........this process carries on an hence you have a gorge!

    hey i can't believe i still remember that.......it's been a year and a half since i learnt about it..........anyway hope it helps!

    A gorge forms where a waterfall retreats further backwards upsteram, leaving a steep sided chasm where it once was. This feature is what is known as a gorge.
