Cis and Trans Links in Natural Channel Networks

Cis and Trans Links in Natural Channel Networks An explanation of the excess of trans links over cis links in natural channel networks is proposed. The basic assumptions are (1) channel networks develop by headward growth, (2) tributaries are generated independently on the two sides of the main channel, and (3) once a tributary has been established, the probability of other tributaries developing further downstream on the same side is greatly diminished. Computer simulations of a simplified version of this model produce networks with about 58% trans links. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Water Resources Research Wiley

Abstract

An explanation of the excess of trans links over cis links in natural channel networks is proposed. The basic assumptions are (1) channel networks develop by headward growth, (2) tributaries are generated independently on the two sides of the main channel, and (3) once a tributary has been established, the probability of other tributaries developing further downstream on the same side is greatly diminished. Computer simulations of a simplified version of this model produce networks with about 58% trans links.
