Document title

A mid-late Holocene flood record from the alluvial reach of the Mahi River, Western India

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Flooding of rivers in India is linked with the peak monsoons. In this study, the slackwater deposits in the alluvial reaches of the Mahi river basin have been documented. These occur in the ravines incised during the early Holocene on an alluvial surface comprising sediments of Late Pleistocene age. The stratigraphy of these deposits indicates that the first two slackwater units have resulted due to flooding in a regime of intense monsoon. The other two units, however, represent extreme high magnitude floods in a period of low average precipitation
