A) River basins are tributaries that drain into a much larger water shed. B) A river basin is a large channel of water that is always flowing down a slope.

C) It contains a major river and all the streams and creeks that flow into that river.A principal focus for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Coastal and Marine Geology Program () is regional reconnaissance mapping of inner-continental shelf areas, with initial emphasis on heavily used areas of the sea floor near major population centers.

The objectives are to develop a detailed regional synthesis of the sea-floor.
