Fluvial flow

Fluvial flow is the amount of water flowing downriver from the non-tidal Thames. There is always water flowing outbound (downriver) and is the reason that the river fills up very quickly when it meets the inbound (flood) tide. After heavy rainfall, the fluvial flow will increase causing the outbound stream to increase in speed. When combined with an ebb tide this can make the river more difficult to navigate on and in some cases, dangerous.
