Transcript of Utah's Geography
Longitude and latitude are measured North and South of the equator and East or West of the prime meridian. They show exact location of the place. A street address is also an exact location. There is only one place with that exact address.
Physical Features and Natural Resources
Utah's land region
In Utah, three major landforms regions of the western United States meet. The major landforms of the regions are basins, plateaus , and mountains. Each region is made up of one main kind of landforms but may contain others.
Plants and Wildlife
Plant life is just as diverse as Utah's land. Some plants are indigenous, or natural to the state, while others have been brought in from other places. When the first white settlers viewed the Salt Lake Valley, they saw sagebrush, grasses, dwarf oak, and willows on the valley's floors and forest of pine trees and aspens in the mountains.
The physical features include things that are
natural to the environment such as mountains,
valleys, rivers, and lakes. Natural Resources such as plants, animals, minerals, and fresh air are also parts of the physical features of a place.
Public and Private lands
Our country's national government own more than 60 percent of Utah's land. The Utah State government also owns a lot of land. This land includes forest, parks and monuments, wilderness and wildlife areas, and reservoirs that are open for use by everyone in the nation. Private individuals also own land.
Like in landforms, Utah's climate varies greatly from place to place around the state. Climate refers to the five most important conditions of the air. They are temperature, wind, sunshine, humidity, and precipitation.
