What is the minimum depth needed for a feature to be considered a canyon?


Question asked by: knowitall

Great question, however there is no absolute question.

In fact it's a bit like considering when a few grains of sand become a heap of sand: there is no absolute point where something turns from a depression to a canyon.

The definition is simply a deep, narrow steep-sided valley, but the minimum depth is not absolute.
