How does a river begin?
|Q:||Ask a Question about How does a river begin?|
More water comes from melting ice and snow. Small streams gradually merge and become bigger, until they eventually form a river.
The tiny streams that are the source of a river often begin in damp areas such as swamps or bogs, or may flow out of a pond or lake. Usually they are in hills or mountains, where the rainfall is heaviest.
The character of a river changes along its course. The rushing stream near its source slows as it reaches flatter ground, and as it nears the sea, the river becomes wider and the flow is more sluggish.
