Burning Questions: When does a large puddle become a pond and a pond become a lake?
6:00am Wednesday 5th February 2014 in News
The scene in 2012 when torrential rain turned Penhill Park, Sidcup, into a windsurfing lake - or was it a pond?
WITH all the rain we’ve had this year so far it’s been hard to escape the sight of water, so today we have a question on the wet stuff for you to tackle.
The rainfall has created some interesting – if unwanted – new water features around the area, so what we want to know is when does a large puddle become a pond and when does a pond become a lake?
Is it down to the body of water’s size, or depth? Does the type of water matter or whether the feature is natural or man-made?
Add your ideas – or definitive answers if you have them – below to help explain how these standing bodies of water should be identified.
Our Burning Questions feature aims to settle some of life’s perennial arguments and answer some of its little mysteries with readers’ collective knowledge.
We’d love your suggestions for arguments and questions you’d like us to cover. What are the things that make you go hmmm? Add your comments below or email us
