An alluvial plain is a largely flat landform created by the deposition of sediment over a long period of time by one or more rivers coming from highland regions, from which alluvial soil forms.
The American Bottom is the flood plain of the Mississippi River in the Metro-East region of Southern Illinois, extending from Alton, Illinois, south to the Kaskaskia River.
Aquatic plants are plants that have adapted to living in aquatic environments (saltwater or freshwater).
In geology, bedrock is the lithified rock that lies under a loose softer material called regolith at the surface of the Earth or other terrestrial planets.
The Bois Brule Bottom (French: Bois Brûlé) is an alluvial floodplain in Bois Brule Township in Perry County, Missouri stretching between Bois Brule Creek to the west and the Mississippi River to the east.
The Bottomland hardwood forest is a type of deciduous hardwood forest found in US broad lowland floodplains along large rivers and lakes.
Brazil (Brasil), officially the Federative Republic of Brazil (República Federativa do Brasil), is the largest country in both South America and Latin America.
The Caspian Depression (p, Caspian Lowland) or Pricaspian/Peri-Caspian Depression/Lowland is a low-lying flatland region encompassing the northern part of the Caspian Sea, the largest enclosed body of water on Earth.
Ecology (from οἶκος, "house", or "environment"; -λογία, "study of") is the branch of biology which studies the interactions among organisms and their environment.
Fluvial terraces are elongated terraces that flank the sides of floodplains and fluvial valleys all over the world.
Fresh water (or freshwater) is any naturally occurring water except seawater and brackish water.
Freshwater biology is the scientific biological study of freshwater ecosystems and is a branch of limnology.
Geology (from the Ancient Greek γῆ, gē, i.e. "earth" and -λoγία, -logia, i.e. "study of, discourse") is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time.
In ecology, a habitat is the type of natural environment in which a particular species of organism lives.
Manaus or Manaós before 1939 or (formerly) Barra do Rio Negro, is the capital city of the state of Amazonas in the North Region of Brazil.
Mountain river is a river that runs usually in mountains, in narrow, deep valley with steep banks, rocky stream bed, and accumulated rock debris.
In geography, a plain is a flat, sweeping landmass that generally does not change much in elevation.
A riffle is a shallow landform in a flowing channel, and it has specific topographic, sedimentary, and hydraulic indicators.
A riparian zone or riparian area is the interface between land and a river or stream.
A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river.
Mean sea level (MSL) (often shortened to sea level) is an average level of the surface of one or more of Earth's oceans from which heights such as elevations may be measured.
Sediment is a naturally occurring material that is broken down by processes of weathering and erosion, and is subsequently transported by the action of wind, water, or ice, and/or by the force of gravity acting on the particles.
A stream is a body of water with surface water flowing within the bed and banks of a channel.
A stream bed is the channel bottom of a stream or river, the physical confine of the normal water flow.
Stream gradient is the grade measured by the ratio of drop in elevation of a stream per unit horizontal distance, usually expressed as metres per kilometre or feet per mile.
Stream restoration or river restoration, sometimes called river reclamation in the UK, describes a set of activities that help improve the environmental health of a river or stream.
The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States (U.S.) or America, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions.
