What is a River ?

A river is a natural watercourse flowing towards the ocean , a lake or another river . Rivers have collected many names over time and some of these are ; streams , creeks and brooks . The are also called burns , rivulets , rills , runs , burns and becks .

Many of these definitions are local and used for smaller rivers , with streams and creeks being quite popular . Some rivers will flow into a hole in the ground and dry up . These are called Dry Rivers .

A river begins at a source , follows a course , and ends at its mouth . A river will flow through a channel , will have a bed , and a right and left bank .

The right or left bank of the river is determined by the direction of flow ; for example , the right bank of the river , is the right side of the direction of flow .

There are Youthful Rivers , Mature Rivers , Old Rivers and Rejuvenated Rivers .
