Found a link that I think is fascinating.  Have not heard it explained in any kind of detail before.

There is a link at the top of the page for the main article, which is also very good.

Thanks, Don.  I will have to set aside some time to read this.  Never know if it will have something in it that will help to find the darned things.

YW.  I always enjoy reading articles on geomorphology.  I will post more as I find 'em.
