Wild water running down the slope

Small cascading waterfall in a forest with autumn foliage.

Torrents are steeply sloping streams.

They are generally mountain waters. They originate from rheocrene springs (apparent, sloping, flowing springs) and glaciers, but more generally from wild water running down slopes.

The profile of a torrent is constantly changing. More or less powerful floods constantly modify the currents and their erosive action on the river bed and banks. This phenomenon is amplified by irregular flow rates and laminar, turbulent flows.
