Do rivers flow faster upstream?
Rivers do not flow upstream. All rivers follow gravity downstream. That's why its called "upstream" its going AGAINST the normal flow of the river.
No. The water flows downstream. Correction, I believe the Amazon flows upstream
No. In the mountains, gravity makes the rivers flow faster. Lowland rivers are slower than mountain rivers.
Any country upstream from the rivers mouth.
Salmon swim upstream because they are born in rivers, but salmon live in the North Atlantic ocean and the Pacific ocean, but salmon, once they have to lay their eggs they return to their birthplace. Since they were born in rivers ,and since rivers flow downstream into oceans, salmon must swim upstream to reach their birthplace in the rivers.
when a body moves against the flow, it is known as upstream flow
Faster than you can swim.
Flowing water has the capacity to pick up soil and move it. Small streams flow into larger streams, carry soil with them. Larger streams flow into rivers which flow into larger rivers, and eventually these rivers reach the sea. Large amounts of soil are deposited in river deltas, which are more or less triangular shaped regions where rivers run into the sea. Meanwhile, soil is continually lost from the upstream regions.
No, a river only flows one way, they either flow upstream or downstream not both.
It has remained unchanged for most of the time. It is only in recent years that the diversion of water from rivers has changed river flows. In general the flow has reduced so that sedimentation happens further upstream.
Upstream is where the flow is coming FROM . -Downstream is the direction it is going to.
Small streams flow into rivers and the rivers flow to bigger rivers.
Many rivers, especially small rivers, flow into other rivers which eventally flow into the sea or an ocean.
Valleys and rivers will make a v-shape. (with the tip of the v pointing upstream)
Rivers flow down.
No, the rivers flow into oceans.
No, rivers will flood at low-lying area near their mouths, where the sea levels will rise. The height of river water depends on the rainfall received into the watershed. If sea level rises, that will have no effect on flow rate upstream.
A slowing of the flow of the river, both upstream and downstream. Flooding of cultivated fields, upstream.
No rivers flow up elevation.
There are many rivers that flow into the Hudson bay. Four of the larger rivers that flow into the bay are the Grande, Eastmain, Severn and Winisk rivers.
Think about race cars and those curved turns. I think it has something to do with centrifugal force, not 100% on that.
it was easier to travel upstream
2509 rivers flow through Italy
oklahoma's rivers flow south-east
No rivers actually flow uphill
Where the Rivers Flow North was created in 1978.
All of the rivers in Siberia tend to flow north. These rivers flow north as they being pulled to drain into the Arctic Ocean.
upstream or uphill..need the context
Hundreds of rivers flow through the US.
The divide separates how the rivers flow from one place to another. In the northern part of the divide, the rivers flow to Lake Erie, while in the southern part of the divide, the rivers flow to the Ohio river.
It does not. Actually it does. I'm in 6th grade and learning about that.The Nile flows upstream because of gravity. The majority of the Nile runs south to north because of gravity. However, there are also parts of the river that run north to south, ex. about 200 miles in Sudan. At no point, however, can the river run upstream. Upstream by definition is opposite the flow of the river (Merriam-Webster).
Most rivers do not flow to the south. Rivers can only flow from areas of higher elevation to lower elevations, taking the route of least resistence. This is regardless of whether rivers are in the northern or southern hemisphere.
Riverboarding - also known as Bungee Surfing is the only sport that has ever been invented in Idaho. This Idaho born sport has been practiced on rivers all over the world. Riverboarders ride small surfboards on rivers, shooting upstream at 30+ mph. No boat or motor. Riverboarders use the river current to stretch a 20 foot long bungee cord to about 200 feet, then get sling shotted upstream for a ride that is longer and… Read More

It is not unusual that rivers flow north if they are north of a continental divide.

The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers flow into the Persian Gulf.
what does it mean to say where ancient rivers flow in poetry
Rivers can flow in any direction.
I am assuming you mean the rivers and rivulets that flow int a bigger river and contribute to its flow. In that case they are called tributaries. If you mean what are the rivers called when they flow into the sea, then they are called delta's or river mouths.
downsream, upstream and elavation
All of the rivers in Wisconsin flow into the Gulf or the Great Lakes. One of the largest rivers in Wisconsin, that does flow into the Gulf of Mexico, is the Mississippi River.
It depends on the amount of "drop" or "fall" that the river has to it. The greater the change in elevation in relation to the horizontal distance for the area in question, the faster the river will flow. The volume of water also comes into play. During a heavy rain or flood the water will flow faster. Most rivers are judged by the gallons of water that pass a given point over a given time… Read More

Narmada and Tapi are the two Peninsular rivers that flow through trough. These are two large rivers.
In mainland France, there are 119 rivers that flow directly to the Atlantic Ocean, the English Channel, and the Mediterranean Sea. These direct rivers are called fleuve, from the word flow. There are also hundreds of tributaries, which are rivers that do not flow directly, no matter their widths or flow rates. These tributaries are called rivières.
