Not defined but is in use to describe the area of the riverbed together with other tags such as landcover=* or surface=*. As most rivers have fluctuating water levels this area would be typically larger than the area defined by riverbanks and encompass all areas regularly flooded and visibly formed by the river.
How to map
Most mappers draw riverbed as an area covering the complete area of the riverbed and river, while others prefer to tag only areas that are not under water.
