Interior Plains By Jenny, Salman & Benson Land Shape Size Minerals/Rock Water Bodies Soil Vegetation Climate The land shape of the Interior Plains are not all flat. The majority of the land shape composes of rolling hills, deep wide river valleys, low mountains and forests. The Interior Plains region can be described as mainly flat with prairie grasslands. As you head east, the land slopes gently get flatter and flatter. The Interior Plains are one of the biggest regions. It extends northwards to the Arctic Ocean and goes south to the Gulf of Mexico.The Interior Plains are 1300km in the South and 275km in the North. Description The Interior Plains region of Canada is located in between the Cordillera and the Canadian Shield. The Common Name for the Interior Plains region is the Prairies. The Interior Plains were covered by shallow seas. Sediments from the Canadian Shield and Western Cordillera were kept in the seas for over millions of years. Eventually the sediments were compressed by the layers into sedimentary rock. Some bodies of water that are in the Interior Plains region is the Saskatchewan River, Lake Winnipeg, Great Slave Lake and Great Bear Lake. In the North is Tundra which is a treeless area where the ground is always frozen. In the South there are deciduous and evergreen trees such as pine,spruce and fir trees. The Prairies have different kinds of tall grasses. For example June grass and porcupine grass. In the North the weather is very extreme with long winters and short/cool summers. Down South, summers are long and hot while winters are cold with very little precipitation. Winters can be between -10°C and -30°C. Summers can be between 10°C and 30°C. The soil that developed on sediments are deep and able to produce an abundant amount of crops/vegetation. Grain and wheat are grown in many locations in the southern part of the Interior Plains. Industries Tourism Key Cities Some industries in the Interior Plains are farming/agriculture, forestry, mining, and oil and gas industries. Crops that farmers may grow are barley, oats, potatoes, etc. The mining industry is also crucial because of the fuel products like oil, uranium and coal. Key cities in the Interior Plains include:
