The lower course - Classification of the river

The lower course of the river occurs in the plains, across which it meanders or zigzags slowly. The river here loses much of its velocity and thus much of its ability to carry heavier sand and silt in suspension. It, therefore, deposits part of its silt load as sand banks or shingle beaches and builds up large flat plains by spreading alluvium over a wide flood plain or delta.
