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.

Why are there 4 rivers named Illinois?

The Illinois River I always knew is the tributary of the Mississippi in the state of Illinois.

I just found out there are three more rivers called Illinois, each in another state (Oklahoma, Colorado and Oregon).

Why? It's not like it's a generic name like "Big" or "Green" etc.

Why is it that the Somme has such a broad floodplain? Most rivers in France don't have this complex shape, and mostly have simple, clearly defined borders.

Would anybody like to join my research panel?

In English

I'm a university student in the USA, and I am working on a project where I will create a product for the indigenous people of Ecuador to help filter oil out of their water due to the recent oil pipe bursts into the rivers of the Amazon Rainforest. I would like to create a diverse research panel with people of different expertise to help me through this project. If anybody is interested or knows somebody who may be interested, please comment on this post or DM me so that we can get in contact. Thank you!

Me gustaría formar un panel de investigación diverso con personas de diferentes especialidades para ayudarme en este proyecto. Si alguien está interesado o conoce a alguien que pueda estar interesado, por favor, comente en esta publicación o envíeme un mensaje directo para que podamos ponernos en contacto. ¡Gracias!

Book recommendations?

Hi I'm looking for any recommendations on the history or mythology of rivers or water courses especially in Europe but around the world too. I'm especially interested in the connection between rivers and female deities in ancient pagan traditions. For example the River Dee in Scotland comes from the word Diva which means goddess. Thanks 🙂
