Formation on a chart in which a price experienced very little up or down movement.
A flat surface; especially, a broad, level, elevated area of land; a table-land.
Any comparatively flat area of great extent or elevation.
An extensive area of relatively flat land in an area of high relief. (Source: The Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Physical Geography, edited by Andrew Goudie et al. Blackwell Reference Ltd. Oxford, 1985.)
An elevated area with relatively little internal relief.
An extensive upland region at high elevation with respect to its surroundings.
Reaching a level or period of stability. Dieters can plateau when they have lost enough weight that their new, lower, metabolic needs match their caloric intake
An area of level, high land.
(1) (Geographical) an elevated plain, tableland or flat-topped region of considerable extent. (2) (Oceanographical) an ELEVATION from the bottom of the OCEAN with a more or less flat top and steep sides.
an elevated area of relatively flat land. It is often limited on at least one side by an escarpment, or an abrupt drop to lower ground
an elevated land area with a flat top that is wider than it is high (a butte is about as wide as it is high, and a pinnacle is higher than it is wide.)
A level or almost level area on elevated land.
Generally high ground with more or less concordant summits and low relative relief.
a flat plain in the mountains or at a height above sea level.
A leveling off period that some people hit when trying to become fit, usually because the body is not being challenged anymore at the current intensity of exercise. A re-evaluation is needed, in terms of exercise and nutrition. Usually one needs to increase activity intensity to overcome a plateau.
upland surface, flat and horizontal, upheld by resistant beds of sedimentary rock or lava floss and bounded by a steep cliff
1. An extensive upland region. 2. A relatively elevated area of comperitively flat land.
a relatively flat highland
a broad, level, elevated region commonly bounded partly by cliffs
a flat area of the search space in which a whole set of neighbouring states have the same value
a high form of flattery
a large, raised, level piece of land
an elevated plain whose edges slope somewhat abruptly to a lower level
an elevated track of comparatively flat or level ground, commonly bound on at least one side by an abrupt slope (scarp)
a piece of land that is flat but it is also elevated or raised
a stepping stone to a higher level
a wide broad area
Level of peak oil or gas field production; it is always followed by declining level of production.
A temporary or more permanent leveling off of the recovery process.
An elevated tract of comparatively flat or level land, having a large part of its total surface at or near the summit level. Its local relief may be very great in cases where it is cut by gorges, or it may have a small local relief like a plain in cases where erosion has not been severe. Its minimum horizontal dimension in any direction generally exceeds 1.6km.
A high area with a flat top that may have deep canyons.
A large region that is higher than the surrounding area and relatively flat.
Fr. "serving plate"] - any area that is higher than (some of) its surroundings and fairly flat when considered from sufficient distance.
A period or level at which something is stabilized for a time, represented on a graph as a horizontal line.
A plateau is a large, flat area of land that is higher than the surrounding land.
a broad area of comparatively flat land at a high elevation
A temporary or permanent leveling off in the recovery process.
large, flat area that stands above surrounding land
(or tableland) An elevated area of mostly level land, sometimes containing deep canyons. From the top of the plateau you can see for miles around.
a flat piece of land with a high land elevation
a very large, flat area of land that usually is higher than the land around it. A plateau can sometimes be surrounded by mountains.
High altitude area of land, unbroken by mountain ranges.
A high flat area.
A physiographic province. It is a high standing area whose rock strata are horizontal.
training to reach a high steady and consistent level of performance
An extensive upland mass with a relatively flat summit area that is considerably elevated above adjacent lowlands, and is separated from them on one or more sides by escarpments. A comparatively large part of its total surface is at or near the summit level. See mesa and mountain.
a comparatively flat-topped feature of considerable extent, dropping off abruptly on one or more sides PLTU
An elevated region of considerable extent, generally fairly level.
An elevated area of relatively level land.
An extensive flat area that stands prominently above its surroundings.
A relatively elevated area of comparatively flat land which is commonly limited on at least one side by an abrupt descent to lower land. Sometimes called a table or tableland. See also Mesa.
In geology and earth science, a plateau, also called a high plateau or tableland, is an area of highland, usually consisting of relatively flat open country.
