abandoned meanders

i was trying to classify some flora in a vintage t-shirt graphic and came across this sentence full of dreamy words
Calcareous Spring Marshes and Muck Fens

This group contains herbaceous wetlands of calcareous, groundwater-saturated sloughs, abandoned meanders, depressions, and spring overflows on large stream or river floodplain terraces.
