These are lakes that are formed through damming of a river by gravitational deposition associated with volcanic eruptions, landslides and debris flows. Typical examples are the Wudalianchi Lake and Mirror Lake, which were formed by blockage of a river with lava, and Diexi Lake in Sichuan Province, which was formed by blockage of a river with landslide debris.
