Typical Problems with Basins
Describing and classifying the typical tough cases that violate the assumptions of our basins model. Eventually we'll want to revist these and determine a way to handle them. Note that all coordinates given are LAT followed by LON for easier entry into Google Earth.
Completely Desert BasinsSo dry that any overland flow is nonexistent and all water is absorbed by sand.
Dry WashesArid regions can have substantial rivers end in a non-channelized wash, all flow apparently absorbed by the sand. (sheet flow)
Non draining plateausflat areas (sometimes inland, sometimes coastal) where there is no evidence of water draining in any direction.
