Mathematical evaluation of forces involved in formation of river beds, according to Law of Baer; Law states that on northern hemisphere all rivers exercise pressure against right bank, south of equator against left bank, affecting them more than corresponding opposite bank; mathematics is based on principle of dynamics regulating Coriolis Force.
