What are the erosional and depositional landforms?

Erosion is the wearing away of the landscape by different agents like water, wind and ice. The eroded material is carried away or transported by water, wind, etc. and eventually deposited. Landforms created because of erosion are called erosional landforms and landforms created because of deposition are called depositional landforms. 

  • Erosional landforms: Valleys, potholes, entrenched Meanders and river Terraces.
  • Depositional landforms: Alluvial Fans, deltas, meanders and braided channels.
