The Distribution and Characteristics of the Natural Resources of North America

North America is a landmass in the Northern Hemisphere and the fourth largest continent in the Northern Hemisphere. It is also described as the northern component of a single continental continent, America. The continent has been called the Old World due to its location on the route of the old ice-age divide between the Younger Dryas and the mammoths. It is bordered on two sides by the United States and on the east by the Arctic Ocean.

The heart of North America is what is known as the States of America and is bordered on two sides by the states of New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma and on the west by the Canadian Border. The western section of the continent is known as the American continent while the eastern section is known as Native American lands. In terms of language and culture, North Americans fall into three major linguistic groups: English, French and Native American. There are two different types of people living in North America: indigenous and non-native. There is a large amount of intermingling between the two groups. However, there are also many differences between the two groups.

The most apparent geographical distinction between North America and the rest of the world is the size of the continent. The land area of North America, approximately 576 million acres, is much less than the world’s total land area of more than seven hundred million acres. Furthermore, the ratio of land to water is much greater in North America than in the rest of the world. These differences have led some to compare the American land area to the sumo wrestling ring because of the fact that the American continent is much smaller than the average wrestling ring.

One of the most distinguishing features of North America is its geography and topography. The geography and topography of North America has changed significantly over time. Most areas of the continent are mountainous and have climates characterized by cold winters and hot summers. Some areas of North America are so cold that they are considered polar caps, while others have warm climates. Therefore, one could say that the variation in climatic conditions affects the geography and topography of North America.

Some of the key differences between North America and the rest of the world include: The United States is largely urban while the rest of the world is more rural. The United States has a large amount of empty space whereas other countries with similar population sizes have very low percentages of vacant land. Furthermore, both Canada and the United States have large coastal areas whereas most other countries have little or no coastline at all. Lastly, the United States has the largest number of mountain ranges in the world whereas other countries such as Canada and the Caribbean have relatively small mountain ranges.

The geography and topography of North America has an effect on the development and society of the continent. The mountains and vast plains of the north stimulate the development of farming and business in the region. This is why the United States has the largest agricultural land area in the world. At the same time, this natural resource has led to the creation of many cities including New Orleans, Glacier National Park, Wyoming, Alaska, and Albuquerque to name a few.
