In describing the drainage net of the Humber River (Ontario), the various parameters used (stream length, number, order: basin area: mean annual discharge) were found to have clear linear relationships. These relationships could not have arisen by chance, and, hence, reflect the regularity of the erosional processes at work. Product moment correlation analysis was also employed between stream length and basin area.
