Abstract

Evidence is growing that lateral planation is a significant agent in the creation of low-relief landscapes in some regions. Recently described examples of moderatly large-scale river migration and planation on the North American plains include a nearly 100 km migration of the Bow River in Alberta, an 80 km migration of the Missouri River in Montana, and migration of a system of tributaries of the Milk River in Montana. The concept of lateral planation has implications not only for landscape evolution, but also for interpretation of ancient deposits
