There is evidence, in parts of the southern Gangetic plain, of river incision and terrace formation, although the elevation ranges across the plains are small relative to the seasonal variation of stage in the main rivers. In the northern parts of the plain, there is interaction between the longitudinal rivers and lateral influx of water and sediment in rivers crossing fans such as the Gandhak and the Kosi, and the inter-fan areas are locations where aggradation and avulsion are dominant.
