The evolution of the great river systems of southern Asia during the Cenozoic India-Asia collision : rivers draining southwards

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper describes the southward-draining systems of Afghanistan, of Tibet and southeast Asia, and of the Himalaya and southern Tibet, and concentrates on base levels of erosion, recent river gradients and the response to tectonic, climatic, and local changes. The drainage history of southern Asia can be reconstructed by restoring the gross movements of the plates and the tectonic displacement, uplift, and erosion of individual tectonic units. Most important changes in drainage took place in Pliocene to Quaternary times
