About the lesson
The size and shape of the surface of the earth varies from place to place and such variations in the lithosphere are known as landforms.
Landforms are formed by two processes: Internal process (upliftment and sinking) and external process (erosion and deposition).
Plateaus are an elevated piece of flat land, also referred to as table land.
Plains are large stretches of flat land and are very close to the sea level in height.
Humans inhabit almost every major landforms of the earth, and the lifestyle of people depends on the landforms they inhabit.
