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

At the confluence , the Ohio is considerably bigger than the Mississippi ( Ohio at Cairo: 281,500 cu ft/s (7,960 m3/s); Mississippi at Thebes : 208,200 cu ft/s (5,897 m3/s) ) and, thus, is hydrologically the main stream of the whole river system, in no small part because its flow includes the mountain stream-fed tributaries along both banks of the Monongahela River and the Allegheny River as well as the tributaries of the Ohio itself

Tributary
A TRIBUTARY or AFFLUENT is a stream or river that flows into a larger stream or main stem (or parent) river or a lake . A tributary does not flow directly into a sea or ocean. Tributaries and the main stem river drain the surrounding drainage basin of its surface water and groundwater , leading the water out into an ocean. A confluence , where two or more bodies of water meet together, usually refers to the joining of tributaries. The opposite to a tributary is a distributary , a river or stream that branches off from and flows away from the main stream. Distributaries are most often found in river deltas .
