Done adding the rivers, though I'd like more fresh water in the peninsula. Any idea how I could get that over there?
As you can see I'm trying to change the mountains to match the style of the hills, though as they're all on one layer it's taking a while. :)
Nice changes you've made! I can't recall a peninsula with a river down the middle but maybe it could be like a delta. That would allow you to get more fresh water in there. Perhaps something like this?
Attachment 55564 I added the hills to justify the odd route for the river. You could also add a lake somewhere.
Thanks, Viking, for that! However, I've got polar ice right to the south of the southernmost mountain (shown in white):
I'm pretty sure the river wouldn't continue to flow in that case.
lol no maybe not. That said, many streams do form from glacier melt water. If the glacier is stable (not receding or growing) it is just melting at the same rate it is being formed at.
So what you're saying is I could keep that river you drew without being unrealistic?
Possibly yes, though you'd want to significantly reduce the width or size of the river lol. You wouldn't necessarily see a river on a glacier or anything either but glaciers do have tiny streams running through them at times if there is enough melting going on. What may happen is a number of these tiny streams coming out of the glaciered up area would eventually form a significant river. You could possibly have the portion of that river from the south be more full of water in summer months and dwindle in size and flow significantly in winter months.
Check out melt water
Glaciers also may have rivers flowing below them, but I don't know how stable those may be.
Very fast pace learning curve here, Amino. Its interesting to watch the Progress here.
I agree that there are rivers still in frozen zones, shifting with the seasons
