Comments[edit]

it be Montereau or Montereau-Fault-Yonne instead of "Monterau"?--Joanenglish (talk) 14:38, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

I looked on satellite photos and maps - there's a lock at Montereau-Fault-Yonne, so It has to be - the rest fits too. Dickie (talk) 16:46, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Infobox image[edit]

I much prefer the previous infobox image rather than the current overcooked HDR image. Kaldari (talk) 19:52, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

I think this topic should include some information about the bouquinistes - the open-air book stalls lining the banks of the river. For example they are mentioned in the lonely planet and also on this website: http://goparis.about.com/od/shopping/a/Seinebookseller.htm. I think it would be a great addition to this - anon page. --124.168.35.86 (talk) 12:46, 9 February 2009 (UTC)--124.168.35.86 (talk) 12:46, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

I put a new topographic map of the Seine basin, more clear (I hope so). A svg version of this map is available on Commons. Chamois rouge (talk) 16:53, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Tags removed[edit]

I removed a pair of tags (pasted below) from the page that were causing a style fault in my browser, since removal fixed problem and appeared to cause none, and I could find no explanation in history or here. Nevertheless, excuse me if these are an important result of some arcane wiki-deliberations, revert if there's a consensus. I have not seen these elsewhere.

Source for physical figures?[edit]

Some figures look dubious to me. "The average depth of the Seine today at Paris is about eight metres": unlikely, since the Mairie de Paris reports Pont Mirabeau as having the maximum depth inside Paris (5.70 metres). Also, "The average flow of the river is very low, only a few cubic metres per second" looks wrong, too. With a speed of 0.5 m/s and a width of 140 m at Pont Mirabeau (measured on Google Maps), we get a flow rate of about 300 cubic metres per second. Sam Hocevar (talk) 11:59, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Is it an article about the Seine river or about Paris ?[edit]

Most pictures here represent the Seine in Paris or the Paris bridges. What a lack of information for a 700 km long river ! The article has to be developped much more.Nortmannus (talk) 00:45, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

  • So true! History is SO lame compared to, say, the Thames.
