Trellis drainage pattern

  • The geometry of a trellis drainage system is similar to that of a common garden trellis used to grow vines.
  •  As the river flows along a strike valley, smaller tributaries feed into it from the steep slopes on the sides of mountains.
  • These tributaries enter the main river at approximately 90 degree angle, causing a trellis-like appearance of the drainage system.
  • This pattern is found usually in old degraded areas like Chota Nagpur plateau, Deccan plateau etc.
