Abstract: A drainage basin consists of slopes and channels. Slopes are the main fields at which rainfall input is converted into discharge. Stream-channels are the main fields at which the discharge from the subbasins is synthesized and transported to down-stream. The channel network geometry plays very important role in the above transportation process. This paper focuses on its process based on channel network geomorphology. Author presents new finding on the relationship between runoff characteristics and network magnitude.
