A stream that enters a lake or ocean is called an existing habitation. These can form in many ways, but the most common way is when a river flows into a large body of water. The stream will lose its current and slow down as it approaches the shoreline. This slows the rate of erosion on both sides of the bank, so they are able to stay in contact with one another until they merge and create an island. These islands can be unstable and erode away if the stream has a more powerful current. An Existing Habitation: A Stream That Enters a Lake or Ocean, is also an island. These are the most common type of islands and they create barrier beaches, including salt marshes. The depositional feature that forms where a stream enters a lake or ocean is called an existing habitation. This can form in many ways but typically happens when there’s slow erosion on both banks until they merge and become one landmass with water flowing around it like sandpaper smoothing out rough spots. Other types of islands include atolls which develop from coral reefs as well as red mangrove forests – these grow along shorelines to protect the island from waves because their roots reach deep into the ground for stability as do their tangled branches (
