You explore some more advanced corridor models in Chapter 10, but there are plenty of simple, single-baseline applications for alternative corridors such as channels, berms, streams, retaining walls, and more. You can take advantage of several specialized subassemblies or build your own custom assembly using a combination of generic links. Figure 9-42 shows an example of a stream corridor.
