Lowland

 

land lying not more than 200 m above sea level. The surface is usually level, although it may sometimes be hilly. Lowlands are formed chiefly by tectonic subsidence and the filling of basins with marine or continental deposits (chiefly river alluvium), which bed more or less horizontally. Some lowlands lie below sea level, for example, the Caspian Lowland.
