Topography Affects Flow Self-organizing canal hypothesis: The prevalence and orientation of ridges and sloughs are controlled the capacity of the landscape the route flow. Ridges (because they are higher) impede flow, making sloughs the conduits to route water off the landscape As ridge increase, they impacts flow anisotropically
