This is a river system where the direction of flow follows the general direction of the ground. For example, a flow in a direction directly related to the original dip, a radial flow controlled by a geological structure and a converging flow towards a basin centre are all consequent rivers. Likewise, the streams that have developed into a radial water system on the granite body in Huangshan Mountain are all consequent streams (Fig. 46).
