P.S. Please let me know if I posted it in the right community.

Seasonal ponds are ponds that only exist for part of the year. Jamesqf covered it well in his comment. There is just a wide variety of terms explaining the same thing. The terms were originally used more for streams (Perennial water), but it has slid into broader usage.
