Anatomy of a River–Rivers 101
We all work on or around rivers, right? But I have to tell you I don’t know all that much about rivers as rivers. My background is in practices and academic disciplines other that hydrology, aquatic ecology, and the like.
So I was very glad to find this short discussion of some of the parts of a river. I don’t think it has everything, but it’s a start.
What do you think–should we start a glossary? A wiki? We could put it on the River Life Partnership web site www.environment.umn.edu/riverlife.
