A whirlpool.

An eddy is water that flows opposite from the normal flow of a

river. When a river's water level rises, tributaries that point in

the opposite direstion of the flow of the river will rise too. This

water will flow upstream in the tributaries and fill them to the

level of the river. In some regional areas, such as southern states

of the US, an eddy is a part of a river that is set off from the

river where the water has no flow at all unless the river is

rising.
