As it was
This natural land drainage is an aspect of Geography or Geomorphology and needs to be distinguished from such other drainage systems as surgical drainage, sewerage, storm drains, katabatic winds and fen drainage.(RJP 21:28, 23 May 2005 (UTC))
Not sure what the picture has to do with the drainage systems mentioned - or at least its relevance is not explained--Superbfc 18:04, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
- I assume the picture is supposed to show a radial drainage pattern, so I added that to the caption. It isn't the best graphic for showing drainage, but at least the caption is clearer now. As for distinguishing this page from other types of drainage systems -- if there are wikipedia pages on surgical, sewer, etc, drainage systems, we could make a disambiguation page. But it doesn't seem like there are other pages contending for the name... so, til then... Pfly 06:55, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
hopefully people arent thrown off by the spelling in the caption.. i mean, i think it's pretty radical, but thats not exactly a scientific adjective. ha ha poop.

From Roland 11:23, 12 June 2007 (UTC) . I have put "(Geomorphology)" behind the first definition of "drainage system" and added some information on "agricultural drainage systems".

Annular drainage system
Annular drainage systems are arranged in ring-shaped patterns around a central basin.
Hello! As you can see on the main article, I have edited the texts of the first two types of drainage (one needed a whole rewrite while another had a wrong reference). These were subsequently fixed. Also, I have added another reference -- Mr. Ritter's textbook, which you can click here: . This is a very reliable source of information and is used in many universities. You may find this link useful for other Earth Science articles on Wikipedia as well.
I hope you find this helpful.
