    The term piping has been used to describe subsurface erosion processes and concentrated subsurface water discharge. Physical features created by piping have been termed pipes. Piping can occur in natural landscapes due to individual or combined effects of mechanical (e.g., corrasion), chemical (e.g., soil dispersion), or biotic (e.g., animal burrowing) forces normally occurring in subsurface environments.
