While natural processes are important to understanding the evolution of the Humber and the Don river systems, what is interesting is the combination of both natural and counteracting anthropogenic processes and the resulting evolution. This paper discusses the major natural and anthropogenic processes that have affected the evolution of these river systems and how these contrasting influences have resulted in two distinct river systems.
From the Paper:"The Humber River and the Don River are two of the major river systems that lie on either side of the city of Toronto. The Humber lays to the west, the Don to the east. These two river systems are unique from one another in that natural processes affecting the Humber resulted in less anthropogenic processes than ultimately negatively affected the Don. As a result, while both river systems are facing pollution and urbanization challenges, the Humber River system has been less disturbed due to less urbanization."
