Description:
A waterfall is a geological formation resulting from water, often in the form of a stream, flowing over an erosion-resistant rock formation that forms a sudden break in elevation. Almost all of the great waterfalls are known but there are many hidden treasures off the beaten path, waiting to be enjoyed.
Expanded Description:

The waterfall must be natural, with a minimum vertical fall of 10 feet.

For all cascade type waterfalls, the angle of descent should be at least 60 degrees.

Instructions for Posting a Waterfalls Waymark:

To post a new waymark you need to provide a photograph of the waterfall that you have taken. The picture DOES NOT need to include your GPS, just try to get the best shot you can of the falls. Name your waymark after the waterfall and include the city/town and country. E.g. "Hammerbachwasserfall - Aschau, Bayern, Germany"

Try to get as close as you safely and legally can to the waterfall to get the coordinates.

The descriptions below are for use with the "Type" variable when submitting a waymark.

Block
Water descends from a relatively wide stream or river.

Cascade
Water descends a series of rock steps.

Curtain
Curtain waterfalls occur along a wide breadth of stream where the falls must be taller than it is wide. A waterfall of this form often becomes narrower in low discharge periods.

Fan
Water spreads horizontally as it descends while remaining in contact with bedrock.

Horsetail
Descending water maintains some contact with bedrock.

Plunge
Water descends vertically, losing contact with the bedrock surface.

Punchbowl
Water descends in a constricted form, then spreads out in a wider pool.

Segmented
Distinctly separate flows of water form as it descends.

Slide
Similar to a cascade, a Slide type waterfall descends a smooth, gradual bedrock surface. Slide waterfalls maintain constant contact with the bedrock, and are often seen in areas where granitic rocks are common.

Tiered
Water drops in a series of distinct steps or falls.
