Alluvial[edit]

"A plain is a landform formed by the deposition of alluvial soil over a long period of time by a river coming from the mountains." Isn't that just the definition of an alluvial plain, which is something different? Billy Shears 20:20, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes. I have changed "a plain" to "an alluvial plain", though I don't know if it needs to be removed altogether. Joe D (t) 21:55, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Merge suggestion[edit]

whether it makes sense to merge all these small plain articles into one. `'mikka 19:58, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Missing plains[edit]

I removed the list. There is Category:Plains, which works fine. The following articles are red:

All plains have a defined boundary?[edit]

i wanted to add a sentence to mention that plains generally as bounded by a geological and physical feature sucha as mountain a set of hills or a body of water. What are there people's thoughts on this idea? Chrisfromcanberra (talk) 01:41, 6 February 2009 (UTC) max− —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.251.10.73 (talk) 13:58, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Contradition in terms[edit]

this is all so freakin' wrong!!!!!! have any a y'all been in 8th grade? what idiots

The first sentence reads

'relatively high relief, as well as flat'

Isn't this a contradition? low relief means flat. High relief means the opposite. Chrisfromcanberra (talk)



I changed the wording to

'with relatively low relief, that is flat or gently rolling' BrasilianEngineer —Preceding unsigned comment added by Brasilian Engineer (talkcontribs) 00:59, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
