英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Floodplain wetlands are important features in alluvial settings across the world because of their ecological and hydrological significance. Understanding the geomorphic evolution of such wetlands is therefore not only interesting from an academic viewpoint but also necessary for their conservation and protection. Using a hierarchical system of geomorphological ‘elements’ and ‘units’, detailed geomorphic investigations have been carried out in the Kosi-Ganga interfluve, Eastern Ganga Plain (EGP) in the Himalayan foreland to understand the distribution and diversity of the floodplain wetlands in this region. The major geomorphic elements in this region consisting of lentic (wetlands, lakes) and lotic (streams) water bodies were mapped using multispectral satellite images. The...
