dc.description.abstractMeasurements were taken of the height of the banks of several Canterbury rivers, and the distance of these banks from the right and left side of the stream. It is shown that in many cases the average left bank is steeper than the average right, and that the average position of the main stream is nearer the left bank. This renders it probable that the rotation of the earth has had a deflecting influence upon the courses of the rivers running through the Canterbury Plains.en
