Abstract:

A model is given which describes the behavior of a mature drainage network in terms of four network parameters. The principal parameters are stream length ratio alpha and bifurcation ratio beta. The alpha, beta-pairs lie within an admissable region bounded by implicit functions. The model is amenable to computer solution and may be used to estimate the number, sizes and interfluvial distances of streams to be crossed whn traversing a drainage basin, or succession of basins, with a force of varying width.
