Cutbank Technical Terms

Cutbank: a) A slope or wall portion of a cut excavated into unconsolidated material (regolith) or bedrock, as in a borrow pit. It may stand nearly vertical resulting from collapse as the base is undercut during excavation or by erosion, or it may be reduced by subsequent erosion to a more subdued angle by slope wash. Compare – cut, beveled cut, roadcut. SW b) (not preferred – refer to escarpment, meander scar, bluff) [colloquial – western USA] – A steep, bare slope formed by lateral migration of a stream. GG
