River Mouth
A RIVER MOUTH is the part of a river where the river flows into another river, a lake , a reservoir , a sea or an ocean . CONTENTS * 1 Water motion * 2 Landforms * 3 Cultural influence * 4 See also * 5 References WATER MOTIONThe water from a river can enter the receiving body in a variety of different ways. The motion of the river mainly depends on the relative density of the river compared to the receiving water and any ambient motion in the receiving water, such as tides or seiches . If the river water is denser than the surface of the receiving water, the river water will plunge below the surface at the plunge curve. The river water will then either form an underflow or an interflow within the lake. If the river water is lighter than the receiving water, as is typically the case when fresh river water flows into the sea, the river water will float along the surface of the receiving water as an overflow

Liman (landform)
LIMAN (Лиман) is a Hellenized Russian adaptation of the Medieval Greek λιμένας (limenas) meaning bay or port. The term is usually used in place of the more universal delta , with its implication of landform , to describe wet estuaries in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov
Sea of Azov
. A synonymous term GUBA (губа) is used in Russian sources for estuaries of the Russian shores in the north. A liman forms at the widening mouth of a river , where flow is blocked by a bar of sediments . A liman can be maritime (the bar being created by the current of a sea) or fluvial (the bar being created by the flow of a bigger river at the confluence ). Water in a liman is brackish with a variable salinity: during periods of low fresh-water intake it may become significantly more saline as a result of evaporation and inflow of sea water

Digital Object Identifier
In computing, a DIGITAL OBJECT IDENTIFIER or DOI is a persistent identifier or handle used to uniquely identify objects, standardized by the International Organization for Standardization
International Organization for Standardization
( ISO
ISO
). An implementation of the Handle System , DOIs are in wide use mainly to identify academic, professional, and government information, such as journal articles, research reports and data sets, and official publications though they also have been used to identify other types of information resources, such as commercial videos. A DOI aims to be "resolvable", usually to some form of access to the information object to which the DOI refers. This is achieved by binding the DOI to metadata about the object, such as a URL , indicating where the object can be found

Spit (landform)
A SPIT or SANDSPIT is a deposition bar or beach landform off coasts or lake shores. It develops in places where re-entrance occurs, such as at a cove's headlands , by the process of longshore drift by longshore currents. The drift occurs due to waves meeting the beach at an oblique angle, moving sediment down the beach in a zigzag pattern. This is complemented by longshore currents, which further transport sediment through the water alongside the beach. These currents are caused by the same waves that cause the drift. CONTENTS * 1 Hydrology and geology * 2 Notable spits around the world * 3 Human settlement patterns * 4 See also * 5 References HYDROLOGY AND GEOLOGYWhere the direction of the shore inland re-enters, or changes direction, for example at a headland , the longshore current spreads out or dissipates. No longer able to carry the full load, much of the sediment is dropped. This is called deposition

Diffuse
Diffusion
Diffusion
is the net movement of molecules or atoms from a region of high concentration (or high chemical potential) to a region of low concentration (or low chemical potential). This is also referred to as the movement of a substance down a concentration gradient . A gradient is the change in the value of a quantity (e.g., concentration, pressure , temperature ) with the change in another variable (usually distance ). For example, a change in concentration over a distance is called a concentration gradient, a change in pressure over a distance is called a pressure gradient , and a change in temperature over a distance is a called a temperature gradient . The word DIFFUSION derives from the Latin
Latin
word, diffundere, which means "to spread out" (a substance that “spreads out” is moving from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration)

Advection
In physics , engineering , and earth sciences , ADVECTION is the transport of a substance by bulk motion. The properties of that substance are carried with it. Generally the majority of the advected substance is a fluid. The properties that are carried with the advected substance are conserved properties such as energy . An example of advection is the transport of pollutants or silt in a river by bulk water flow downstream. Another commonly advected quantity is energy or enthalpy . Here the fluid may be any material that contains thermal energy, such as water or air . In general, any substance or conserved, extensive quantity can be advected by a fluid that can hold or contain the quantity or substance. During advection, a fluid transports some conserved quantity or material via bulk motion

Tides
TIDES are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon
Moon
and the Sun and the rotation of Earth
Earth
. The times and amplitude of tides at any given locale are influenced by the alignment of the Sun
Sun
and Moon, by the pattern of tides in the deep ocean , by the amphidromic systems of the oceans, and the shape of the coastline and near-shore bathymetry (see Timing ). Some shorelines experience a semi-diurnal tide—two nearly equal high and low tides each day. Other locations experience a diurnal tide—only one high and low tide each day. A "mixed tide"—two uneven tides a day, or one high and one low—is also possible. Tides vary on timescales ranging from hours to years due to a number of factors. To make accurate records, tide gauges at fixed stations measure water level over time

Sediment
SEDIMENT is a naturally occurring material that is broken down by processes of weathering and erosion , and is subsequently transported by the action of wind, water, or ice, and/or by the force of gravity acting on the particles. For example, sand and silt can be carried in suspension in river water and on reaching the sea be deposited by sedimentation and if buried this may eventually become sandstone and siltstone , ( sedimentary rocks ). Sediments are most often transported by water (fluvial processes ), but also wind (aeolian processes ) and glaciers . Beach sands and river channel deposits are examples of fluvial transport and deposition , though sediment also often settles out of slow-moving or standing water in lakes and oceans. Desert sand dunes and loess are examples of aeolian transport and deposition. Glacial

Ocean
An OCEAN (from Ancient Greek Ὠκεανός, transc. Okeanós , the sea of classical antiquity ) is a body of saline water that composes much of a planet 's hydrosphere . On Earth

World Ocean
. These are, in descending order by area, the Pacific , Atlantic , Indian , Southern (Antarctic), and Arctic
Arctic
Oceans. The word sea is often used interchangeably with "ocean" in American English
American English
but, strictly speaking, a sea is a body of saline water (generally a division of the world ocean) partly or fully enclosed by land. Saline water covers approximately 360,000,000 km2 (140,000,000 sq mi) and is customarily divided into several principal oceans and smaller seas, with the ocean covering approximately 71% of Earth's surface and 90% of the Earth's biosphere
