Layering results from periodic major flooding events that may not have been experienced since settlement. LANDFORM: The flood-out landform is inclined radially away from a point on the margin or at the end of a stream channel, aggraded by over-bank stream flow, or by channelling stream flow associated with channels developed within the over-bank flow (McDonald et al. 1990). In this case, flooding of this land unit would be infrequent and the landform would be relatively stable. Localised drainage channels have formed within this land unit and may flow during annual rainfall. events.
