Not every stream corridor has a hydrologic floodplain.Topographic floodplain, the land adjacent to the channel including the hydrologic floodplain and other lands up to an elevation based on the elevation reached by a flood peak of a given frequency; for example, the 1-percent (100 year) floodplain.Another way to look at it, in an incising channel, that is to say that the river is cutting into valley, will create two floodplain benches, the lower and narrow one the hydrologic floodplain and the higher and much wider one the topographical floodplain.
