Tributaries
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 .

Strahler Stream Order
In mathematics , the STRAHLER NUMBER or HORTON–STRAHLER NUMBER of a mathematical tree is a numerical measure of its branching complexity. These numbers were first developed in hydrology by Robert E. Horton (1945 ) and Arthur Newell Strahler (1952 , 1957 ); in this application, they are referred to as the STRAHLER STREAM ORDER and are used to define stream size based on a hierarchy of tributaries . They also arise in the analysis of L-systems and of hierarchical biological structures such as (biological) trees and animal respiratory and circulatory systems, in register allocation for compilation of high-level programming languages and in the analysis of social networks . Alternative stream ordering systems have been developed by Shreve and Hodgkinson et al

Hierarchy
A HIERARCHY (from the Greek hierarchia, "rule of a high priest", from hierarkhes , "leader of sacred rites") is an arrangement of items (objects, names, values, categories, etc.) in which the items are represented as being "above", "below", or "at the same level as" one another. A hierarchy can link entities either directly or indirectly, and either vertically or diagonally. The only direct links in a hierarchy, insofar as they are hierarchical, are to one's immediate superior or to one of one's subordinates, although a system that is largely hierarchical can also incorporate alternative hierarchies. Indirect hierarchical links can extend "vertically" upwards or downwards via multiple links in the same direction, following a path . All parts of the hierarchy which are not linked vertically to one another nevertheless can be "horizontally" linked through a path by traveling up the hierarchy to find a common direct or indirect superior, and then down again

West Virginia
in the United States
United States
. Via the Little Kanawha and Ohio rivers, it is part of the watershed of the Mississippi River
Mississippi River
, draining an area of 184 square miles (480 km2) in a rural region on the unglaciated portion of the Allegheny Plateau . It is 6.3 miles (10.1 km) long, or 31.7 miles (51.0 km) long including its Right Fork. Steer Creek is formed by the confluence of its Right Fork and its Left Fork: * The RIGHT FORK STEER CREEK, 25.4 miles (40.9 km) long, rises approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) northwest of Frametown in western Braxton County and flows generally north-northwestward into southern Gilmer County , through the communities of Tague , Rosedale , and Shock

Current (stream)
A CURRENT, in a river or stream , is the flow of water influenced by gravity as the water moves downhill to reduce its potential energy . The current varies spatially as well as temporally within the stream, dependent upon the flow volume of water, stream gradient , and channel geometrics. In tidal zones , the current in rivers and streams may reverse on the flood tide before resuming on the ebb tide

Tree Structure
A TREE STRUCTURE or TREE DIAGRAM is a way of representing the hierarchical nature of a structure in a graphical form. It is named a "tree structure" because the classic representation resembles a tree , even though the chart is generally upside down compared to an actual tree, with the "root" at the top and the "leaves" at the bottom. A tree structure is conceptual, and appears in several forms. For a discussion of tree structures in specific fields, see Tree

Tree (data Structure)
In computer science , a TREE is a widely used abstract data type (ADT)—or data structure implementing this ADT—that simulates a hierarchical tree structure , with a root value and subtrees of children with a parent node, represented as a set of linked nodes . A tree data structure can be defined recursively (locally) as a collection of nodes (starting at a root node), where each node is a data structure consisting of a value, together with a list of references to nodes (the "children"), with the constraints that no reference is duplicated, and none points to the root. Alternatively, a tree can be defined abstractly as a whole (globally) as an ordered tree , with a value assigned to each node

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Estuary
An ESTUARY is a partially enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea. Estuaries form a transition zone between river environments and maritime environments. They are subject both to marine influences—such as tides , waves, and the influx of saline water—and to riverine influences—such as flows of fresh water and sediment. The inflows of both sea water and fresh water provide high levels of nutrients both in the water column and in sediment, making estuaries among the most productive natural habitats in the world. Most existing estuaries formed during the Holocene
Holocene
epoch with the flooding of river-eroded or glacially scoured valleys when the sea level began to rise about 10,000–12,000 years ago. Estuaries are typically classified according to their geomorphological features or to water-circulation patterns

Data Structure
In computer science , a DATA STRUCTURE is a particular way of organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently . CONTENTS * 1 Usage * 2 Implementation * 3 Examples * 4 Language support * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 Bibliography * 8 Further reading * 9 External links USAGEData structures can implement one or more particular abstract data types (ADT), which specify the operations that can be performed on a data structure and the computational complexity of those operations. In comparison, a data structure is a concrete implementation of the specification provided by an ADT. Different kinds of data structures are suited to different kinds of applications, and some are highly specialized to specific tasks. For example, relational databases commonly use B-tree indexes for data retrieval, while compiler implementations usually use hash tables to look up identifiers
