moulin
The French word for 'mil', moulin has been used to describe partially dissolutional, partially scoured pockets cut in rock, particularly the potholes formed in the beds of surface and underground streams. In some areas sinkholes in the surface of glaciers, which may provide access to glacier caves, are also referred to as moulins [9].
