Talk:Proposed features/Former riverbed
River Gauja has one case of old riverbed which is more like wetland. Then I would call it wetland = former_riverbed or old_riverbed
There are no "former riverbeds" in the world.
Riverbeds are always the lowest cuts in an area, and they stay lowest even if it dried out.
The correct word for a currently dry river is "wadi".
The danger that it fills rapidly with water if it rains, stays.
