yazoo stream A river tributary that may flow for many kilometres on the floodplain of a trunk stream before finally joining it. The delayed junction is due to the development of levées by the main stream. They are named after the Yazoo River, Mississippi, USA, which follows the Mississippi River for a considerable distance before breaking through its natural levée.
