Hello,

I need the term alimentación fluvial in English, please. The idea is that this phrase introduces a short list which explains how rivers get their water.

Is there any expert in geography here in the forum :?: Thanks in advance for your help.

i would translate it as

fluvial intake


be aware that RIVER INTAKE is not the same as FLUVIAL INTAKE, even though they might seem the same. A river intake is when the river is deflected towards a structure for feeding a lake or city. The fluvial intake is what you're looking for

Best rgds,
