Piedmont Plateau


The plateaus that are situated at the foot of the mountains and are bounded on other sides by a plain or an ocean are called piedmount plateau.

The plateau of Malwa in India, those of Patagonia facing the Atlantic Ocean and the Appalachian situated between the Appalachian Mountain and the Atlantic Coastal Plain in U.S.A are their examples.

In their case, the areas once high have now been reduced by various agents of erosion.

For this reason, these are also called the plateaus of denudation.
