A Flood Plain is the relatively flat land adjacent to a river channel that is underwater when the rivers floods.
A watershed is high water, into low water, into a bigger body of water.
Great Basin is a non- moving were salt evaporates and leaves behind the salt.
Headwaters is extreme upper reaches of a stream. Also light blocked trees making plant life in the stream scarce.
Source is water comes from.
The mouth/ delta is the big part of water and sediment deposited where a river flows into an ocean.
A down river is between headwaters, and floodplain.
Divide means a border of a watershed, what separates different bodies of water.
Tributary is a stream of water which flows into a main stream.
