Abstract: Anastomosing fluvial river is attached great importance by researcher only in resent years because anastomosed channel sandstone is a type of fine reservoirs of petroleum and natural gas and its flood plains and interchannel wetlands are fine places where coal is formed. The anastomosing river is typical in all sedimentary characteristics, geomorphology and hydrology, but the understanding on anastomosing fluvial systems is limited. In this paper some basic characteristics and controlling factors of anastomosing fluvial systems are summarized systematically.
