how are plains formed

  1. Plains are formed when everything in the land weathered or eroded away, leaving the land flat.
  2. Another way the plains are formed is when a volcano erupts and burns everything in its way, all that is left are the plains. This makes bare land or barren plains.

Plains are formed in several different ways. The most common are from a dried up lake or a glacier moving past an area. Both of which leave a flat almost concave surface which geologists call a plain.

The rivers fiow down the slopes which carry forward the eroded material which is then deposited along their courses thus the plains are formed

 When the river trickles down the mountain from the glacier, it starts carrying loys of weathered materail (rocks, sand, silt, etc) along with it as it goes down the mountains. When the river reaches reaches the foothills of the mountains, it starts depositing the weathered material along the river banks thus resulting in plains. These deposits are very good for the growth of plants and are called alluvial deposits. In India the largest plain in the Indo-Gangetic Plain formed by the rivers Ganga and Indus.

Hpoe it helps! (and Hope it is not too long)  :)

Most plain areas in the world have been made by rivers,as in the case of the northern plains of india.
Rivers carry sand and silt with them.
When the river slows down,these materials are deposited in there banks.
Plains are formed by these deposits.
Some plain areas are near the sea coast while some are in the interiors of continent.
Plains are far more thickly populated than mountains and platues.

The river flow down the slopes and erode them. They carry forward the eroded material. Then they deposit their load consisting of stones, sand and slit along their courses and in their valleys. It is from these deposits that plains are formed.

Plains are formed by the rivers and its tributaries. The rivers flow down from the mountains and erode materials like sand,silt and stones.these material deposit in the valleys. Thus the plain are formed

Plain r very large stretches of flat land. They r generally ,not more than200 meters above mean sea level. Some Plains r extremely level. Others may be slightly rolling and undulating . Most of the plains are formed river and their tributaries.....

More people live on plains:

a. Plains are characterized by flat leveled land as a result is easy to construct houses, road networks etc.

b. Generally, plains have a fertile land which is suited for cultivation.

The emergent layer consists of the tallest trees in the rainforest and they can grow up to 60 metres. They are higher because they are able to trap more sunlight to help them make more food to grow. Emergent trees are supported by buttress roots which prevent them from blowing over in high winds.The emergent layer consists of the tallest trees in the rainforest and they can grow up to 60 metres.
