1. Undercutting
Erosion of the stream bank toe resulting in an overhang. If the bank is stable (a solid system of tree roots to hold the soil together), the undercut is usually an excellent fish habitat feature; if the bank is unstable soil or a man-made structure, undercutting is likely to lead to bank failure as the unsupported material collapses.
