Superimposed drainage system is;

  • The drainage system develops on a rock structure that overlay a totally different one
  • The river valley cuts through the surface rocks layer onto the underlying rocks
  • Gradually the surface rocks are removed and the underlying rocks now become exposed
  • The superimposed drainage system bears no relationship to the existing rocks structure /discordant with the rods structure
