Confluence
In geography , a CONFLUENCE is the meeting of two or more bodies of water. Also known as a _conflux_, it refers either to the point where a tributary joins a larger river , (main stem ), or where two streams meet to become the source of a river of a new name, such as the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers in Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania creating the Ohio River . The term is also used to describe the meeting of tidal or other non-riverine bodies of water, such as two canals or a canal and a lake. A one-mile (1.6 km) portion of the Industrial Canal in New Orleans accommodates the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet Canal ; therefore those three waterways are confluent there

Rhine
The RHINE (Latin : _Rhenus_, Romansh : _Rein_, German : _Rhein_, French : _le Rhin_, Dutch : _Rijn_) is a European river that begins in the Swiss canton of Graubünden in the southeastern Swiss Alps , forms part of the Swiss-Austrian , Swiss-Liechtenstein, Swiss-German and then the Franco-German border , then flows through the Rhineland and eventually empties into the North Sea in the Netherlands . The largest city on the river Rhine is Cologne , Germany, with a population of more than 1,050,000 people. It is the second-longest river in Central and Western Europe (after the Danube ), at about 1,230 km (760 mi), with an average discharge of about 2,900 m3/s (100,000 cu ft/s). The Rhine and the Danube formed most of the northern inland frontier of the Roman Empire and, since those days, the Rhine has been a vital and navigable waterway carrying trade and goods deep inland. Its importance as a waterway in the Holy Roman Empire is supported by the many castles and fortifications built along it. In the modern era, it has become a symbol of German nationalism

The Indian subcontinent was home to the urban Indus Valley Civilisation of the 3rd millennium BCE. In the following millennium, the oldest scriptures associated with Hinduism began to be composed. Social stratification, based on caste , emerged in the first millennium BCE, and Buddhism and Jainism arose. Early political consolidations took place under the Maurya and Gupta empires ; the later peninsular Middle Kingdoms influenced cultures as far as southeast Asia

Rio Negro (Amazon)
The RIO NEGRO (Portuguese : Rio Negro ; Spanish : Río Negro "Black River") is the largest left tributary of the Amazon River
Amazon River
, the largest blackwater river in the world (accounting for about 14% of the water in the Amazon basin ), and one of the world's ten largest rivers by average discharge . CONTENTS* 1 Geography * 1.1 Upper course * 1.2 Middle course * 1.3 Lower course * 2 History * 3 Fauna * 4 Notes * 5 References GEOGRAPHYUPPER COURSEThe source of the Rio Negro lies in Colombia, in the Department of Guainía where the river is known as GUAINíA RIVER. The young river generally flows in an east-northeasterly direction through the Puinawai National Reserve , passing several small indigenous settlements on its way, such as Cuarinuma, Brujas, Santa Rosa and Tabaquén. After roughly 400 km the river starts forming the border between Colombia's Department of Guainía and Venezuela's Amazonas State . After passing the Colombian community of Tonina and Macanal the river turns Southwest. Maroa is the first Venezuelan town the river passes. 120 km further downstream the river receives the Casiquiare canal from the right-hand, forming a unique link between the Orinoco

and the Amazon river basin. Henceforth the river is called RIO NEGRO

Rio Solimões

Amazon River
in Brazil
Brazil
from its confluence with the Rio Negro upstream to the border of Peru
Peru
. The Solimões portion of the Amazon river lies entirely in the State of Amazonas , Brazil, and some portion of the state is often referred to as the "Solimões region". The ecoregion of the Solimões river drainage basin is entirely tropical rainforest . The name Solimões is mostly confined to Brazilian Portuguese usage; the rest of the world simply refers to this portion of the river as the Amazon River. A nation of aboriginies, called Soriman corrupted into Solimao and Soliemoens, imparts the name to this river and region. NOTES * ^ The oft-repeated claim that the name of the river is derived from a poison solimum used by the tribe "Yurimáguas"(Jurimaguas or Urimagues in Portuguese) living along the shore is probably a mis-transliteration of Solanum, as in Solanum nigrum
