Arctic Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea,
the Baltic Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea all border Europe. Europe also has rivers and lakes. It's longest river is the Volga and it is 3,690 km (2,290 mi) long. It's biggest lake is Lake Ladoga in Russia. It's average area is 17700 km squared. It is the 14th largest lake in the world. Europe's landscape is divided into four parts.
Running from north to south they are the Western Uplands, North European Plain, Central Uplands, and Alpine Mountains. The Western Uplands consists of . It is mostly made of very hard, very old rock. Many of it's landforms were formed by melting glaciers. The North European Plain consists of the southern United Kingdom east to Russia. It is a very large plain that holds many rivers and lies below 152 meters (500 feet) in elevation. The Central Uplands extend east-west across central Europe. They are much lower in altitude and are less rigid than the Alpine Mountains. They consist mostly of heavily dense forests. The Alpine Mountains include ranges in the Italian and Balkan peninsulas, northern Spain, and southern France. This region includes the mountains ranges of the Alps, Pyrenees, Apennines, Balkans, and Carpathians. Europe has many different types of
landforms. It's tallest mountain is
Mount Elbrus in the Caucus Mountains
of Russia and it is, with the highest of its twin
peaks at 5,642 meters (18,510 ft) above
sea level. Europe also includes active volcanoes, such as Mount Etna and Mount Vesuvius in Italy. Bardenas Reales in Navarre county in northern Spain, is the largest desert in Europe. Climate and Weather Human-Environmental Impact Europe is divided into two Eastern and Western regions based on climate. Each region experiences wet and dry seasons every year. Most areas of Europe receive anywhere between 500 to 1,500 mm (20 to 60 in.) of precipitation per year. Yearly temperatures in Europe average to around 17 degrees Celsius (or 62 degrees Fahrenheit). Human Physical Physical Vegetation Christmas Trees In Europe, aproximately 50 to 60 million Christmas trees are cut down a year to serve as decorations in houses. Most areas of Europe receive rainfall all year. Most of Western Europe is covered by forests. The largest vegetation zone in Europe, cutting across the middle of the continent from the Atlantic to the Ural Mountain Range in Russia, is a region mixed with deciduous and coniferous trees that are mostly oak and maple. Volkswagen Passat TDI This German car became 2012's eco-friendly car of the year and approximately uses 30/40MPG needing less gasoline, creating less pollution. Human Glass is the most recycled material with average of 100,000,000 tonnes of cullet (67.5% of all recycled material) a year. Glass Recycling Solid Waste In 2011 only 3.4% of waste was taken to the landfill, leaving the remainding 95.8% of waste to be recycled. Europe's Glaciers Water Forty percent of Europe's fresh water comes from glaciers, but rapid melting is causing the depletion of Europe's fresh water. Irish Potato Famine The Potato Famine of the mid 19th century caused one million Irish citizens to die and another million to immigrate. Rapanui Clothing soccer stadiums Fiat Gileppe Dam of Belgium Protestant Wind In 1588, Spain sent several armadas to invade England, but they were greatly disorganized and mostly destroyed by a storm. Bacon Production The drought is causing a shortage of wheat, thus causing a shortage of pigs, thus causing a shortage of bacon. Glacier Melting Affecting Tourism The Alps Mountain Range is a large tourist attraction that is melting more every year, thus attracting less tourism. The Zagreb Earthquake The Zagreb Earthquake of 1880 was an 8.0 on the Richter Scale and caused 1 death and 1,758 damaged buildings. Hurricane Katia In 2011, Hurricane Katia, a category 4, struck many countries and in Europe, it caused £100,000,000 ($157,000,000) worth of damage. Fiats are compact and require less space to drive. They are italian and are inexpensive, also with reduced fuel consumption. Europe has over 300 stadiums and over 38 under construction. Many animals loose their homes, but more grass is grown. Provides industrial and drinking water, and hydroelectricity. Sailboats are the only type of boat allowed to keep water less polluted. Brand's factories are powered by wind and solar energy. Materials used in their products are easily traced and rated eco-friendly. www.rapanuiclothing.com Bottled Water (table water) In Europe, 97% of bottled water is natural or spring water that is not treated and directly bottled at source. Golf Over 4,000 golf clubs in Europe. Trees are torn down for the green, but grass keeps the air with oxygen. European Windmills Over 40 percent of Europe's power comes from windmills and Europeans are building somewhere close to 20,000 windmills per year. Climate Change Affects Agriculture The climate of Europe is changing because of the many droughts, floods, and storms that are sweeping across the continent. The Polystovo-Lovatskaya swamp system is the largest swamp in all of Europe. Many areas of Europe are going through a process of desertification, which is when all the plant life in an area dies and the area becomes a desert because of droughts, climate change, and human interference. These changes are destroying many species of animal and plant life's natural habitat. The largest desert in Europe is the Icelandic Highlands. They are around 60,000 square kilometers which is around twice the size of Belgium. However, the largest desert in mainland Europe is the Bardenas Reales in Navarre county in northern Spain. Not many species can survive in the Icelandic Highlands or the Bardenas Reales because of the extreme temperatures and very little rainfall. Ecosystems/ Biomes For video, search "Europe's drought threatens global economy and food production.flv" on youtube about how Europe's economy is affected by the drought. 53 seconds to 1:56 Agriculture Changes Affecting Economy Many food and other plant prices are rising very high due to the scarcity of crops because of the drought.
