According to the configuration of the channels, drainage systems can fall into one of several categories known as drainage ge patterns depend on the topography and geology of the land.. Accordant drainage patterns. A drainage system is described as accordant if its pattern correlates to the structure and relief of the landscape over which it :// A different survey system existed along the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

The lecture by Rev. Bryce before the Historical and Scientific Society Thursday attracted a large audience to the City hall. The chair was taken by Rev. Baird, and when the meeting was called to order, Rev. Bryce began his lecture on "Old Lake Agassiz," and the surface geology of the Red River and Assiniboine valleys, speaking as follows: Get this from a library.

The river’s meanders were preserved as a feature called incised meanders. As the river moves onto flatter ground, the stream erodes the outer edges of its banks to carve a floodplain, which is a flat level area surrounding the stream channel (figure 26).
