A strait, or narrow sea, between two portions of lands; as, the British Channel.
A natural stream that conveys water; a ditch or channel excavated for the flow of water.
A natural stream which conveys surface runoff water within well-defined banks.
The trough through which water flows in a stream valley; sometimes reserved for the deepest part of the streambed, in which the main current flows.
The deepest portion of stream through which the main volume or current of water flows.
The depression in the land that a river flows in. bed bank
An open conduit either naturally or artificially created which periodically or continuously contains moving water, or which forms a connecting link between two bodies of water. River, creek, run, branch, anabranch, and tributary are some of the terms used to describe natural channels. Natural channels may be single or braided (see Braiding of river channels) . Canal and floodway are some of the terms used to describe artificial channels.
A prepared flow route within the bench of a manhole that conveys the incoming flow to the downstream pipe.
(3) a natural or artificial watercourse with a definite bed and banks to confine and conduct contiuously or periodically flowing water.
"[A] representation in linguistic theory of the physical means of energy flow itself in an assemblage that includes just those properties that are required to account for the communicatively relevant energy flow in the assemblage" (128).
A raftable route through a section of river.
A flow of packets that match specified filter settings. A defined channel may be turned ON or OFF.
the bed or deepest part of a stream or river
The navigable route of a watercourse, usually the area of deepest water. Chenal in French.
riverbedlike valleys on Mars, which are possibly sites of ancient Martian rivers.
In hydrology, the bed of a river or stream through which water is moved or directed. Channels may be either natural or man-made (e.g., a concrete lined box channel).
the bed where a natural stream of water flows Understanding Watersheds
deeper part of a river; usually more navigable.
the path that a stream follows
means that portion of a WATERCOURSE, either natural or modified by man, that conveys the majority of STORM WATER within its primary flow boundaries. The use of the term CHANNEL often implies a WATERCOURSE that is no longer in its natural condition.
that part of a river where water flows at some time and includes the bed and banks, taken to mean the whole of the depression in which the water flows before it rises sufficiently to spill over onto adjacent lands as flood water.
The bed and banks that confine the surface flow of a stream.
any river, stream, creek, brook, branch, natural or artificial depression, ponded area, flowage, slough, ditch, conduit, culvert, gully, ravine, wash, or natural or manmade drainage way, which has a definite bed and bank or shoreline, in or into which surface or groundwater flows, either perennially or intermittently.
1. An artificial watercourse used for drainage or irrigation purposes. 2. A comparatively deep and narrow waterway affording a passage for vessels. The waterway may be natural or dredged and can occur in a river, harbour or sea.
A water area specifically designated for unobstructed movement of vessels, shown on navigation charts, and marked in-water by aids to navigation. The Connecticut River navigation channel through the Middletown Harbor Management Area is a Federal navigation channel authorized by Congress and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The deepest part of a river or harbor
The bed and banks through which a stream flows.
A channel is a narrow body of water that connects two larger bodies of water (like the English Channel). A channel is also a part of a river or harbor that is deep enough to let ships sail through.
Forestry Operations & Water Quality] A natural water-bearing trough cut vertically into low areas of the land surface by erosive action of concentrated flowing water; also a ditch or canal excavated for the flow of water.
A channel is an area that contains flowing water confined by banks.
The deepest part of a river or bay.
The bed of a river, stream, drainage ditch, or other waterway that transports a concentrated flow of water.
1. That part of a body of water deep enough for navigation through an area otherwise not suitable. It is usually marked by a single or double line of buoys and sometimes by range markers. 2. The deepest part of a stream, bay, or strait, through which the main current flows. 3. A name given to a large strait, for example, the English Channel.
Where a natural body of surface water flows or may flow.
A natural water-carrying trough cut vertically into low areas, caused by concentrated flowing water eroding the land. Also, a ditch or canal excavated for the flow of water.
An area that contains continuously or periodically flowing water that is confined by banks and a stream bed.
The main path of water down a river. It is a depression, usually formed by the strongest currents, on the bottom of a stream or tidal area and is often the deepest area.
An area of a river defined by the banks, a bank and an island, a bank and a rock, or between two rocks.
The space above the bed and between banks occupied by a stream.
linear deep part of a body of water through which the main volume of water flows and is frequently used as aroute for watercraft (passage, reach, strait, thoroughfare, throughfare).
the region of a field effect transistor that conducts or blocks the flow of current when the device switches on and off respectively. See also, Metal Oxide Semiconductor.
the bed of a running stream, river etc
The bed in which a stream of water runs.
the deepest part of a stream or harbour, where most of the water flows.
A natural stream that conveys water; a ditch or canal excavated for the conveyance of water.
The depression where a stream flows or may flow.
In physical geography, a channel is the physical confine of a river, slough or ocean strait consisting of a bed and banks. See Stream bed.
