"Gully" in context

Gullies are water runoff channels on hillsides, formed by runoff from heavy rainfall. They are found on many landscapes, from small hills in the backyard to large hills in nature reserves and parks. The nature of the hill, the amount of rain and the soil characteristics are all important factors that contribute to the formation of gullies. Gullies are usually deeper than the surrounding land, with some having very steep walls. As the gully grows and deepens, it serves as a channel to collect runoff and transport it to a body of water downstream.
