why do rivers flow north to south

Make sure to. This subreddit is for asking for objective explanations. It is not a repository for any question you may have. E is for Explain - merely answering a question is not enough. LI5 means friendly, simplified and layman-accessible explanations - not responses aimed at literal five-year-olds. Perform a keyword search, you may find good explanations in past threads.


You should also consider looking for your question in the FAQ. Don t post to argue a point of view. Flair your question after you ve submitted it.
New River, Ohio? That's the oldest river in the world IIRC. Susquehanna is two or three.


The Appalachians and atlas mountains are some of the oldest in the world. For example Mt. Nittany in the middle of PA, about 3,000 ft. was once Himalayan size, but all the years worn them down. The thing is that most rivers don't flow north to south. Or, more accurately, I'm not sure what the average is, but there are plenty of rivers that flow in every direction.


I think the major US rivers (Mississippi, Hudson, Delaware, Missouri, Susquehanna, Ohio) flow generally N-S, but even there is a difference in west-east alignment. And then the St. Lawrence flows S-N. Anything else is local patterns or frontal.
