Abstract Flexing of the Indian lithosphere due to the continent–continent collision and thrust fold loading produced the Gangetic Foreland Basin during the Middle Miocene. The basin attained its present configuration during the Late Quaternary. Neotectonics and climate change since the last interglacial influenced the evolution of the present landscape of the Gangetic (Ganga) plains. The regional geomorphic surfaces in these plains are: (1) Upland Interfluve Surface (T 2 ); (2) Marginal Plain… CONTINUE READING
