A streakline is the path that a particle will follow in the flow, the locus of particles that have passed sequentially through a prescribed path in the flow. Particles are continuously introduced at a certain point, the streakline shows the line formed due to the release of these particles from the specific point.
A pathline is the path that is followed by a particle released into the fluid; the actual path traversed by a given fluid particle. A pathline represents a particle's path.
A timeline is lines that represent the same set of fluid particles but which show their position at different moments in time. If one point was taken on a timeline and traced with time, a pathline would be obtained.
