Major tributaries of the Ganga in the Punjab were captured by the Indus. Either northeastward advance of the tributaries of the Indus resulted in the capture of the tributaries of the Ganga, or tectonic episodes of the Main Central Thrust and early Miocene uplift of the Salt Range may have caused this major drainage reorganization (Clift and Blusztajn, 2005). For the main part, hinterland tectonics and focused denudation because of uplift driven by erosional unloading appear to be the main influential factors in the growth and development of the large river system sourced in the Himalaya; base level changes modulate the large river system(s) in this region in a framework determined by coupled hinterland tectonic-climatic processes.

2 TECTONIC SETTINGS OF LARGE RIVER SYSTEMS Most modern large river systems have their headwaters in the uplifted zones of large orogens, and flow through extensive continental-scale cratonic areas. 2. Large continental-scale masses such as those of the Indian (drained by the Ganga, Brahmaputra), N. American (Mississippi, Rio Grande), African (Congo, Zambezi, Orange) and Australian (Murray-Darling) Shields adjoining major compressional belts on the globe provide the necessary ‘scale’ constraints for the formation of these rivers, and their sustenance through a long period of time.

Its source region in the Precambrian Guinean Shield is just 240 km from the Atlantic Ocean but the river flows away from the sea into the Sahara Desert and then takes a sharp right turn to southeast to flow into the Gulf of Guinea. , 1990; Gasse, 2000). 3g) tend to develop as dome-flank systems (Cox, 1989). , 1973; White and McKenzie, 1989) postulates that the fracturing of the domal structure formed by mantle plumes may produce rifts and volcanism. Cox (1989) suggested that the rivers rising close to the escarpment mark the flank of the remnant dome; they drain away from the continental edge and the failed arms of the rift system leads the drainage towards the new ocean.
