an accretion of mud, sand, or gravel in a stream either along a bank or at mid stream; sometimes a hazard to navigation, sometimes a refuge or stopping point in a river journey and occasionally the site of a camp, landing, or settlement: Watt's Bar, Hale's Bar.
A bank or shoal running across the mouth of a harbor.
River, Valley or Stream Burushaski
Shallow water in entrance to harbour.
A shoal of sand or mud on which you can run aground.
A submerged or emerged embankment of sand, gravel, or mud built on the sea floor in shallow water by waves and currents. A bar may also be composed of mollusk shells. When it is a ridge generally parallel to shore and submerged by high tides, it is a longshore bar. Offshore bars or barrier bars or beaches are built principally by wave action on sand or gravel at a distance from shore and seperated from it by a lagoon. When a bar extends partly or completely across the entrance to a bay it is called a baymouth bar. A crescentric bar commonly found off the entrance to a harbor is a lunate bar.
An accumulation of sand, gravel, or rock in the river channel or along the banks.
An underwater ridge, usually of sand and/or gravel, that forms from the deposition and reworking of sediments by currents and/or waves. Bars occur in rivers, river mouths and in offshore waters.
A ridge of sand or gravel silted up across the mouth of a river, estuary, or harbor forming a shoal that may hinder navigation.
A generic term for any of various elongate offshore ridges, banks, or mounds of sand, gravel, or other unconsolidated material submerged or built up by the action of waves or currents.
short, raised ridge (on the surface).
a submerged (or partly submerged) ridge in a river or along a shore; "the boat ran aground on a submerged bar in the river"
A barrier at the main entrance to each of the Legislative Council and House of Assembly chambers.
A long strand that is shallower than the surrounding bottom and forms a bar. Bars are mostly found at the mouths of river and generally consist of sand (Sand Bar) or mud (Mud Bar).
a buildup of beach materials lying offshore, submerged most or all of the time
A mound of gravel and sand deposited by flowing water. Bretz and other geologists identified many large bars in the Channeled Scablands.
An accumulation of alluvium(gravel or sand) caused by a decrease in water velocity.
A raised area under the water that may be caused by currents washing gravel, sand or silt to a particular spot making that spot shallower than the surrounding bottom. Bars may be recognized by abstract current lines.
A strip of sediment parallel to the coastline.
Large mass of sand or earth, formed by the surge of the sea. They are mostly found at the entrances of great rivers or havens, and often render navigation extremely dangerous, but confer tranquility once inside. See also: Touch and go, grounding. Alfred Lord Tenneyson's poem 'Crossing the bar' an allegory for death.
This term was given to submerged sandbars that formed in a creek or river. It increased in size as dirt, sand, gravel, black sands and gold were deposited. Sandbars have produced great quantities of gold in the past and should not be overlooked today, if you employ equipment which can wash it rapidly.
An offshore ridge or mound of sand, gravel, or other unconsolidated material which is submerged, at least at high tide
A collection of debris at the entrance to a bay fed by a river, often shallow and dangerous.
An obstacle formed at the shallow entrance to the mouth of a river or bay.
(1) Banks, bands, or strips of sand or gravel that extended into a river. Later used to indicate a camp that sprang up alongside a river bar, such as Chili Bar. (2) The form like a brick that gold was cast into after refining, also called gold bullion. (3) A drinking establishment in town where some miners spent their time and gold dust; also called a saloon.
natural accumulation of sand, gravel, or alluvium forming an underwater or exposed embankment (ledge, reef, sandbar, shoal, spit).
A bank of gold bearing sand or gravel usually found in the slack or quieter part of a stream.
Post-tensioning bars are high strength steel bars normally available from 5/8" to 1-3/4" diameter and usually threaded with very coarse thread.
A region of shallow water usually made of sand or mud.
Ridge of sand or rock fragments formed across the mouth of a river or harbour.
A ridge-like accumulation of coarse sediment deposited by flowing water in the channel, along the banks or at the mouth of a stream or river.
a shallow area formed by sand, mud, gravel, or shingle, near the mouth of a river or at the approach to a harbour which is often dangerous.
silt, sand or gravel deposited on the inside of a stream meander or between the channels of a braided stream
(1) Coarse grained deposit of sediment from a stream or ocean currents. (2) A unit of measurement for quantifying force. Equivalent to 1,000,000 dynes per square centimeter.
Long, low-lying navigational hazard, usually awash, found at river mouths and harbor entrances, where it is composed of sand or mud, and ashore, where it is made of mahogany or some other dark wood. Sailors can be found in large numbers around both.
A bar is a linear shoaling landform feature within a body of water. Bars tend to be long and narrow (linear) and develop where a current (or waves) promote deposition of granular material, resulting in localized shallowing (shoaling) of the water. Bars can appear in the sea, in a lake, or in a river.
