Abstract
River systems are open and self-organizing complex systems. Complex networks theory can well combine rivers' macro properties with their microscopic properties. This paper builds a river network model based on complex networks theory and describes its characteristics. After the analysis of the model used in Haihe River Basin, it shows that Haihe River Basin network has the small-world characteristics. This work provides a new approach to research the properties of river networks, so that to predict and control its behavior.
