Belt of low flat ground bordering a stream channel that is flooded when runoff exceeds the capacity of the stream channel.
Land adjoining a river that would flood if the river overflowed its banks.
A relatively flat surface next to a stream. During floods, when the stream overflows its banks, water flows over the flood plain. Streams construct flood plains that accommodate their maximum flood capacity.
Area along a stream or watercourse that is subject to flood hazard.
(a) The surface of strip of relatively smooth land adjacent to a river channel, constructed by the present river in its existing regimen and covered with water when the river overflows its banks. It is built of alluvium carried by the river during floods and deposited in the sluggish water beyond the influence of the swiftest current. A river has one flood plain and may have one or more terraces representing abandoned flood plains. (b) Any flat or nearly flat lowland that borders a stream and that may be covered by its waters at flood stages; the land described by the perimeter of the maximum probably flood. (c) The part of a lake-basic plain between the shoreline and the shore cliff, subject to submergence during a high stage of the lake.
For a given flood event that area of land adjoining a continuous watercourse that has been covered temporarily by water.
the channel and the relatively flat area adjoining the channel of a natural stream or river which has been or may be covered by floodwater. Land immediately adjoining a stream which is inundated when the discharge exceeds the conveyance of the normal channel.
The lowland and flat areas adjoining rivers, canyons, lakes, and ocean waters that are prone to flooding.
A strip of relatively smooth land bordering a stream, built of sediment carried by the stream and dropped in the slack water beyond the influence of the swiftest current. It is called a living flood plain if it is overflowed in times of highwater; but a fossil flood plain if it is beyond the reach of the highest flood.
An area of land covered with water during river flooding. Flood plains are the basis of alluvial plains.
Lowland, bordering a river, that is usually dry, but which is subject to flooding.
