The word thalweg is also used in hydrology. It refers to a line drawn to join the lowest points along the entire length of a streambed or valley. This is occasionally called a valley line. The term is also sometimes used to refer to a subterranean stream that percolates under the surface and in the same general direction as the surface stream.
