The most commonly used quantitative parameters for characterizing channel networks are those derived from a Horton analysis. Although these parameters give useful information about individual networks, they are ineffective in distinguishing differences in network structure due to lithologic controls and degree of maturity. Parameters derived from considerations of statistical geometric similarity, on the other hand, are relatively successful in characterizing network structure. An example is discussed. Author
