Erosion (V shaped valley)

The V-shaped valley is typical of one that has been carved by flowing water. The erosion is more pronounced when the water flow is a heavy one, and the water carries suspended particles (sedimentary load).

Sediments torn away from the walls are carried away by the water, downstream, where the speed of the flow is too weak to carry them any further.
