Abstract

Emerging in the interior of the Himālaya and flowing through four lithotectonically contrasted and geomorphologically distinctive subprovinces or terranes of the northern orogenic (Himālayan) belt, as already pointed out (Fig.  3.1, Plate  2.1), the two branches of the Saraswatī with their tributaries brought (and continue to bring) enormous quantities of eroded materials and deposited them in multiple channels and in the floodplain.
