RIVER A river is a natural flowing water, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. In some cases a river flows into the ground and becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water. Small rivers can be referred as stream.
LAKE A lake is an area filled with water, localized in a basin, that is surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake. Lakes lie on land and are not part of the ocean, and therefore are distinct from lagoons, and are also larger and deeper than ponds.
POND A pond is a body of standing water, either natural or artificial, that is usually smaller than a lake. They may arise naturally in floodplains as part of a river system, or they may be somewhat isolated depressions
LAGOON A lagoon is a shallow body of water separated from a larger body of water by barrier islands or reefs. They are divided into coastal lagoons and atoll lagoons. Coastal lagoons form along gently sloping coasts where barrier islands or reefs can develop off-shore, and the sea-level is rising relative to the land along the shore. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef, island, or series of islets. It surrounds a body of water called as lagoon.
MEANDER-OXBOW LAKE- DELTA
MEANDER A meander is a bend in a sinuous watercourse or river. A meander forms when moving water in a stream erodes the outer banks and widens its valley, and the inner part of the river has less energy and deposits silt.
