Category:Rhine basin is a sub-category of Category:Drainage basins and part of WP:WikiProject Rivers.

Content

  • This category is intended for all waterbodies (i.e. rivers, lakes, canals, marshes, etc.) that form part of the drainage basin of the main river.
To search geographically, use the Category:Rivers by country and Category:Rivers by continent.

Key

  • Tributaries are grouped by stream order. The main river heads the list, under "1" are its direct tributaries, under "2" are tributaries of "1" and so on. For example, [[Category:Danube basin|1Zusam]] for the Zusam, a direct tributary of the Danube. "0" is used for branches of a delta, old river branches, backwaters, braided streams, anabranches, and rivers that flow directly into sea.
  • Other waterbodies are grouped as follows: "B" for bogs and swamps, "C" for canals and other artificial waterways, "L" for lakes and lochs, "G" for glaciers, "R" for reservoirs and artificial ponds, "S" for springs, and "W" for waterfalls, e.g. [[Category:Elbe basin|LAmselsee]] for the Amselsee.
  • River basin categories are also grouped by stream order, into all higher-order basin systems.


N.B. Currently the stream order does not display properly as a technical change was made to the way categories work which has inadvertently affected stream order syntax. Please feel free to comment at Wikipedia talk:Categorization#Category sorting update.

See Category:Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt delta for distributaries in the common estuary of Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt.
