Characteristics of a river on its old stage include;

  • The widening of the valley through latent erosion creater an extensive area where the river deposits its load, the gradient of the plain is low
  • The is speed of the flow is low the gradient of the plain is low
  • Due to the slow speed and the high deposition, the river forms pronounced meanders
  • Due to the slow speed, the main work of the river is deposition
  • Deposition along the banks of the river channel leads to formation of leeves
  • The reduced speed and increased deposition blocks the river mouth forcing the rivers to form distributances/delta
