kluuviflada

  1. (geography) gloe, slough: bayou (Louisiana) (a shallow body of brackish water or a saltmarsh that has formerly been a bay of a larger body of water, usually sea, but which has been separated from it due to postglacial upthrust, growth of vegetation at the inlet or some other reason.
