  3. Peninsular Rivers of India Lesson 1 of 5 VICE KERAL Presented By S Vijay Jagadeesh

  4. Peninsular River System or Peninsular Drainage Peninsula rivers are much older than the Himalayan rivers They are non-perennial rivers with a maximum discharge in the rainy season. The peninsular rivers have reached mature stage (Fluvial Landforms) and have almost reached their base level. [Vertical downcutting is negligible] The rivers are characterized by broad and shallow valleys. The river banks have gentle slopes except for a limited tract where faulting forms steep sides. The main water divide in peninsular rivers is formed by the Western Ghats, which run from north to south close to the western coast. S VIJAY JAGADEESH

  5. Evolution of Peninsular Drainage System Three major geological events in the distant past have shaped the present drainage systems of Peninsular India: Subsidence of the western flank of the Peninsula leading to its submergence below the sea during the early tertiary period. Generally, it has disturbed the symmetrical plan of the river on either side of the original watershed. Upheaval of the Himalayas when the northern flank of the peninsular block was subjected to subsidence and the consequent trough faulting. The Narmada and The Tapi flow in trough faults and fill the original cracks with their detritus materials. Hence, there is a lack of alluvial and deltaic deposits in these rivers. Slighttilting of the peninsular block from northwest to the south-eastern direction gave orientation to the entire drainage system towards the Bay of Bengal during the same period S VIJAY JAGADEESH

  6. Luni Desert river, two rivers Sagarmati and sabarmati Rises from the western slopes of the Aravalli Range near Ajmer Ends Rann of Kutch in Guiarat In Spite of high salinity, it is a major river in region Serves as a primary source of irrigation in the marshy lands of S VIJAY JAGADEESH

  7. Sabarmati The Sabarmati river is one of the major west-flowing rivers in India. It originates in the Aravalli Range of the Udaipur District of Rajasthan and meets the Gulf of Cambay of Arabian Sea after travelling 371 km in a south-westerly direction across Rajasthan and Gujarat. 48 km of the river length is in Rajasthan, while 323 km is in Gujarat.
