First appearing in English in the 19th century, "riparian" refers to things that exist alongside a river (such as riparian wetlands, habitats, trees, etc.). "Riparian rights," refer to the rights of those owning land along a river or lake to have access to the waterway. "Littoral," usually refers to things that occur along the shore of a sea or ocean.
