 Encyclopedia: Tributary
A tributary (or affluent or confluent) is a contributory stream, a river that does not reach the sea, but joins another major river (a parent river), to which it contributes its waters, swelling its discharge.
When a river's tributaries are listed in orographic sequence, they are in order from the highest (nearest the source of the river) to the lowest (nearest the mouth).
The opposite of a tributary is a distributary; a river branch that flows away from the main stream.

 The Regional Impacts of Climate Change
In humid regions, streams and rivers are likely to experience reductions in total rainfall and/or increases in evapotranspiration that produce longer, more severe droughts during the warm season (IPCC 1996, WG II, Sections 10.3.5, 10.3.7, and 10.4.2).
In the Huaihe River basin and the area to its north, reduced runoff would occur mainly in the spring, summer, and autumn (most significantly in the summer as a result of high temperatures and less rainfall), which may unfavorably affect reservoir storage.
For the Songhuajiang River, Liaohe River, Haihe River, upper reach of the Yellow River, Huaihe River, and Dongjiang River, increases in runoff would occur mainly in the spring, summer, and autumn, necessitating greater flood control.
