Morphological Research and Invention

  • F. Zwicky


If rain begins to fall on previously dry areas of the earth, the water on the ground will make its way from high levels to low levels in a variety of ways. Some of these ways will be more or less obvious, being predetermined by pronounced mountain formations and valleys, while others will appear more or less at random. Whatever courses are being followed by the first waters, their existence will largely prejudice those chosen by later floods. A system of ruts will consequently be established which has a high degree of permanence. The waters rushing to the sea will sift the earth in these ruts and leave the extended layers of earth outside essentially unexplored.
