Abstract: The term "pothole" has been applied to a
variety of depressions by many writers. The term
is used here to describe depressions which are
abraded and scoured by water and grinding
tools under the influence of currents that produce
a vortex motion. Elston (1918) referred
to holes developed in this manner as "normal
potholes," and Alexander (1932) used also the
term "eddy holes" to describe depressions
formed by this mechanism.
