Faulting and rifting sound like they are from last year. Are you sure you're studying earth's fresh water and not earthquakes and volcanoes?
Sometimes they will throw in topics that relate to previous years of Dynamic Planet, but yes they are mechanisms of lake formation. Faulting and rifting can create basins that fill with water, becoming lakes.

Is this kind of like oceanography a few years ago? or is it different?

Not quite. This event focuses on lakes and rivers, which have different properties and things to learn about them when compared to the ocean, but I suppose you could use similar methods to studying the two, as there are some similarities.

no its from this year.
They are a way of lake formation

You can have a river that flows across a fault line.
If that fault moved drastically upwards so that the flow of the river is stopped at the fault it would form a lake
Also if it where to move drastically sideways it could form a lake.
Case in Point: East African Rift Valley. Lots of lakes formed from rifting

Just an Update on the test i'm writing, it should be uploaded sometime around the 1st of the year, if all goes according to plan.
Actually, if you don't mind, it's just the doctor. - Doctor Who.

What is the difference between a wind gap and a water gap?

What is the difference between a wind gap and a water gap?
A water gap is a notch that flowing water carves through a mountain range. A wind gap is a notch in a mountain range that used to be a water gap, but no longer has any water because the stream dried up.
