Green River

 

the name of two rivers in the USA.

(1) In Kentucky, a left tributary of the Ohio River (Mississippi Basin). Length, 449 km; area of basin, 24,400 sq km. The source of the Green River is in the western part of the Appalachian plateau. It flows mainly through flat country and meanders greatly. The rate of discharge varies sharply from 4–5 cu m per sec to 3.000–6,000 cu m per sec (during the heavy summer rains). The channel has locks and is navigable for river vessels up to 320 km from its mouth. Mammoth Cave is located in the valley in the middle reaches of the river, near the town of Mammoth Cave.

(2) In Wyoming and Utah, a right tributary of the Colorado River. Length, 1,180 km; area of basin, 116,500 sq km. The source of the Green River is in the western part of the Wind River Range. Most of the river flows through steep mountain gorges, but in places the valley widens. Highwater is in the spring and summer. The average rate of discharge in the lower reaches near the city of Green River is about 200 cu m per sec. The greatest rate of discharge is about 2,000 and the least about 10 cu m per sec. A hydroelectric power plant and reservoirs are located on the Green River. (The largest reservoir is Strawberry.)
