Rivers


The Rivers Reddit

Rivers - natural flowing watercourses, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. In some cases a river flows into the ground and becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water. Small rivers can be referred to using names such as stream, creek, brook, rivulet, and rill. There are no official definitions for the generic term river as applied to geographic features, although in some countries or communities a stream is defined by its size. Many names for small rivers are specific to geographic location; examples are "run" in some parts of the United States, "burn" in Scotland and northeast England, and "beck" in northern England. Sometimes a river is defined as being larger than a creek, but not always: the language is vague.

Rivers are part of the hydrological cycle. Water generally collects in a river from precipitation through a drainage basin from surface runoff and other sources such as groundwater recharge, springs, and the release of stored water in natural ice and snowpacks (e.g., from glaciers). Potamology is the scientific study of rivers, while limnology is the study of inland waters in general.

at river’s end

every stone and every hole

every lie the water told

every shade on every bend

was known to me at river’s end

every cut and every loon

every dance the bluebells’ bloom

every mist the lord intends

was known to me at river’s end

every word and every thought

every truth my heart had sought

every soul among my friends

was known to me at river’s end

Where Does the Ohio River Start and End: Facts about the Ohio River

Where does the Ohio River start and end?

Where does the Ohio River start and end?

In 1792, the government decided that it was Kentucky that owned the Ohio River and not the other bordering states of this valuable major trade route but ownership rights of the 3rd largest river by volume in the United States didn’t end there. Where does the Ohio River start and end?

The Ohio River starts at the confluence of the Allegheny & Monongahela Rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and ends in Cairo, Illinois, where it flows into the Mississippi River. The Ohio River is located at the boundary of the Midwestern and Southern United States, flowing southwesterly for 981 miles long.

Technically, the river’s formation started between 2.5 and 3 million years ago, marking the occurrence of the earliest ice ages. This is also when several portions of the north-flowing rivers were dammed thanks to the formation of ice, resulting in smaller rivers.

Quick question

Why are there so few river enjoyers? Rivers are incredibly cool and useful. Everytime i see a wide river or a small stream i cant help but to marvel in the presence of a moving body of water.
