Transcript of Landform Region, Appalachians

Appalachian Mountains The Appalachians are a massive land form region with a small part in the eastern area of Canada, but mainly stretching through a large amount of the U.S. The Canadian part of the Appalachians only has
four major cities, 100000 people or more, these being
Sherbrooke (Quebec), Halifax (Nova Scotia), Saint John
(New Brunswick), and St. John's (Newfoundland) The Appalachian Mountains run through the eastern side of Canada, (P.E.I., Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and forms the southern edge of Quebec.) but also runs through a large amount of the United States, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Physical Geography The whole system can be split into three great sections: The northern, from the province of Newfoundland to the Hudson River. The Central, from Hudson Valley to the New River (Great Kanawha) running through Virginia and West Virginia. The Southern, from the New River onwards. The northern section includes the Long Range Mountains and Annieopsquotch Mountains on the island of Newfoundland, Chic-Choc Mountains and Notr Dame Range in Quebec and New Brunswick. There are many other mountains but they are located in the U.S. parts of the Appalachians. Trivia Q:What Canadian provinces do the Appalachians run through? A: P.E.I., Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the southern edge of Quebec. Q:What are the names of the mountains in the Canadian part of the Appalachians? A: The Annieopsquotch Mountains in Newfoundland, the Chic-Choc Mountains and the Notre Dame Rang in Quebec and New Brunswick, and the Long Range Mountains in Newfoundland. Q:What major cities in Canada do the Appalachians run through? A: Sherbrooke (Quebec), Halifax (Nova Scotia), Saint John (New Brunswick) and St. John's (Newfoundland). Q: Where did the name "Appalachian" originate from? A: The name originated in 1528 when an expedition group found a Native American village in Florida and the transcribed name of the tribe and area was evolved many times, bringing the name "Appalachian" to the entire landform region. Q: Where is most of the Appalachian land form region located? A: Most of the Appalachians are located in the northern states of the U.S. traveling to as far as Florida, but a small amount is located in eastern Canada. Human Geography Aboriginal hunters and fishers were the first residents of the region. The Mi'kmaq lived on the mainland, whle the Beothuk inhabited Newfoundland. Later European explorers set up colonies anlong the region's coastline. Ther are only four major cities of 100,00 or more, this may be because alot of problems in the fishing industry have caused people to move from small coastal fishing communities to look for work in the city. Origin of Name While exploring along the northern coast of Florida in 1528 the members of the Narvaez expedition, mincluding Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, found a Native American village near present-day Tallahassee, Florida. Whose name they transcribed as "Apalchen" or "Apalachen". The name was soon altered by Spanish to "Apalachee" and used as a name for the tribe and region spreading well inland to the north. Panfilo de Narvaez's expedition first entered Apalachee territory on June 15, 1528 and applied the name. Now spekked "Appalachian", it is the fourth oldest surviving European place-name in the U.S.
