Abstract

The River Rouge basin is characterized by moderately hilly topography to the northwest graduating to a relatively level land surface to the south east.

Stream gradients near the northwestern basin divide are relatively steep; but many become more steep in reaches where they cross beach lines of former glacial lakes. In the lower reaches of the River Rouge gradients lessen.
