Some of the better known geological basins in England are, the London basin, a shallow trough or syncline of Tertiary, Cretaceous and Jurassic rocks; the Hampshire basin, of similar formations; and the numerous coal basins, e.g.
Strictly speaking, a structural basin is formed of rock beds which exhibit a centroclinal dip; an elongated narrow syncline or trough is not a basin.
Lakes sometimes occupy basins that have been caused by the removal in solution of some of the more soluble constituents (rock salt, andc.) in the underlying strata; occasionally lake basins have been formed directly by crustal movements.
A drainage basin is the area within the drainage basin divide (yellow outline), and drains the surface runoff and river discharge (blue lines) of a contiguous area.
Each drainage basin is separated topographically from adjacent basins by a ridge, hill or mountain, which is known as a water divide or sometimes a watershed (in those parts of the world where the drainage basin itself is not called a watershed).
drainage basin is a logical unit of focus for studying the movement of water within the hydrologicalcycle, because the majority of water that discharges from the basin outlet originated as precipitation falling on the basin.
