*Glaciation has played a major role in the making of British Columbia's landscape
*Glaciation took place about 5 million years, and helped build the fundamentals of mountains.
*British Columbia is dominated by major mountain ranges, including the Coast Mountains, Cassiar Mountains, Columbia Mountains and Canadian Rocky Mountains
*Each of these mountain ranges have a wide variety of sub ranges

*British Columbia is customarily divided into three main regions, the Interior, the Coast and the Lower Mainland
*The mountains were formed by plates converging
*Because of ancient volcanic activity, much of the British Columbia coastline is a jagged expanse of hundreds of islands and dozens of long, deeply indented fjord-like recesses. This is a picture of the Coast Mountains. This is a picture of the Rocky Mountains. This is a picture of the highest mountain in the west Mt. Robson. This is a picture of the Cassiar Mountains. The West Region's Water:
*2.1% of British Columbia is made up of water
*One of the main rivers is the Thompson River
*It is composed of sedimentary rock
*The Fraser River is one of the longest rivers and healthiest river in British Columbia
*It is 2,657 km long
*The Fraser River discharges 20 million tons of sediment into the ocean
*there are thousands of rivers and lakes across BC This is a map of the Rivers in BC. This is an image of the Fraser River. Basic Information:
*British Columbia is 1/11th of Canada.
*there are mountainous regions, grasslands, forests, and urban developments within British Columbia
*the area is 944,700 km²
*the population as of 2011 was 4,400,057 This is urban BC. This is BC's grasslands. Thanks For Listening!!
