Drainage Basin Morphometry and River Network Analysis: A Review and Synthesis

Resource type
Date created
This discussion paper is a review of drainage basin morphometry and river network analysis. It is essentially an assemblage of techniques which have become both an important part of geomorphology ahd a useful set of morphometric inputs to hydrologic models of river basins. The paper also provides a discussion of the ideas which collectively have become known as the theory of dynamic equilibrium. It is interesting that many of the concepts and techniques which grew out of this theory have been incorporated into the conventional discipline while the original conceptual framework has become somewhat suspect.
