Stream

creekstreamscreeks
In limnology (the study of inland waters), a stream bank or river bank is the terrain alongside the bed of a river, creek, or stream.
A stream is a body of water with surface water flowing within the bed and banks of a channel.

Stream bed

riverbedstreambedriver bed
In limnology (the study of inland waters), a stream bank or river bank is the terrain alongside the bed of a river, creek, or stream.
The lateral confines or channel margins are known as the stream banks or river banks, during all but flood stage.

River

riverineriparianleft bank
In limnology (the study of inland waters), a stream bank or river bank is the terrain alongside the bed of a river, creek, or stream.
The water in a river is usually confined to a channel, made up of a stream bed between banks.

Channel (geography)

channelchannelsshipping channel
The bank consists of the sides of the channel, between which the flow is confined.
A stream channel is the physical confine of a stream (river) consisting of a bed and stream banks.

Seine

River SeineSeine RiverSeine valley
The descriptive terms left bank and right bank refer to the perspective of an observer looking downstream, a well-known example of this being the sections of Paris as defined by the river Seine.
It rises at Source-Seine, 30 km northwest of Dijon in northeastern France in the Langres plateau, flowing through Paris and into the English Channel at Le Havre (and Honfleur on the left bank).

Grade (slope)

gradegradientgrades
The grade of all these banks or shorelines can vary from vertical to a shallow slope.
The grades or slopes of existing physical features such as canyons and hillsides, stream and river banks and beds are often described.

Reservoir

artificial lakereservoirsartificial
The shoreline of ponds, swamps, estuaries, reservoirs, or lakes are also of interest in limnology and are sometimes referred to as banks.
Such reservoirs are usually formed partly by excavation and partly by building a complete encircling bund or embankment, which may exceed 6 km (4 miles) in circumference.

Riparian zone

Riparian zones occur along upland and lowland river and stream beds.
Plant habitats and communities along the river margins and banks are called riparian vegetation, characterized by hydrophilic plants.
