Aubach (Wiehl) in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
The Aubach (Wiehl) in Germany (Watercourse)
The Nam Khan flows into the Mekong at Luang Prabang in Laos.
Rocky stream in Italy
A fjord (Lysefjord) in Norway
At Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, looking downstream, the Shenandoah River (bottom right) meets the Potomac River, which flows from bottom left to top right. So the Shenandoah is a right tributary of the Potomac, not a left tributary.
Frozen stream in Enäjärvi, Pori, Finland
River Gambia, Niokolokoba National Park
The basin of the Amazon River is a system made up of many tributary streams. The streams shown on the map besides the Amazon are tributaries of the Amazon.
Stream near Montriond in southeastern France
Port Jackson, Sydney, New South Wales
The Benue River is fed by multiple tributaries originating in the Adamawa Plateau; many of the highest tributaries are seasonal streams. The Benue is itself a major tributary of the Niger.
Wyming Brook in Sheffield, UK
The Canal Grande in Venice, one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. View from the Accademia bridge.
Huai River (itself a tributary of the Yangtze) and tributaries
A small stream in Lake Parramatta, Sydney
A tide pool in Santa Cruz, California with sea anemones and sea stars
Jialing River (itself a tributary of the Yangtze) and tributaries
Stream with low gradient surrounded by natural riparian vegetation (Rhineland-Palatinate)
A weir in Toledo, Spain. Weirs are frequently used to change the height of a riverlevel, prevent floodings, and measure water discharge.
The Liao River is a much simpler example of a river basin with tributaries. The main tributaries noted on this map are the Hun River, Taizi River, Dongliao River, Xinkai River, Xiliao River, Xar Moron River and the Laoha River. The Xiliao River's tributaries are the Xar Moron and Laoha rivers.
A low level stream in Macon County, Illinois, US
The Mekong is a trans-boundary river, originating in the Tibetan Plateau. Its upper tributary river systems (e.g. the Salween River) are restricted to narrow gorges, but the tributaries that feed its lower reaches (e.g. the Mun River) cover larger areas.
Small tributary stream, Diamond Ridge, Alaska, US
The water basin of the Wabash River; the other rivers (not including the Ohio River) are tributaries of the Wabash River. The Vermillion River (and its forks) is a highlighted example of a tributary of the Wabash River. The Wabash River is also a tributary of the Ohio River, which in turn is a tributary of the Mississippi River.
Creek in Perisher Ski Resort, Australia
The Yamuna is the second-largest tributary river of the Ganges and the longest tributary in India. It flows almost parallel to the Ganges about its right bank for {{convert|1376|km}} before merging with it at the Triveni Sangam, Allahabad.
Stream in Southbury, US
Australian creek, low in the dry season, carrying little water. The energetic flow of the stream had, in flood, moved finer sediment further downstream. There is a pool to lower right and a riffle to upper left of the photograph.
Stream in Alberta
A small, narrow stream flowing down a tiny dell in Pennsylvania.

A stream is a continuous body of surface water flowing within the bed and banks of a channel.

- Stream

A tributary, or affluent, is a stream or river that flows into a larger stream or main stem (or parent) river or a lake.

- Tributary

A body of water does not have to be still or contained; rivers, streams, canals, and other geographical features where water moves from one place to another are also considered bodies of water.

- Body of water

A confluence, where two or more bodies of water meet, usually refers to the joining of tributaries.

- Tributary

A tributary is a contributory stream, or a stream which does not reach a static body of water such as a lake or ocean but joins another river (a parent river).

- Stream

Tributary or affluent – a stream or river that flows into the main stem (or parent) river or a lake.
