SCOPE NOTE

  • A temporary water body is a wetland, spring, stream, river, pond or lake that only exists for a period of time i.e. is not perennial. They can be ephemeral or intermittent. Ephemeral water bodies exist for only a short time following precipitation or snowmelt - they are not the same as intermittent or seasonal water bodies, which exist for longer periods, but are still not perennial.
