Amazing Geography Facts

More than half of the coastline of the entire United States is in Alaska. There are no natural lakes in the state of Ohio, every lake is man-made. The Eisenhower interstate system in the USA requires that one-mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.

 

The Amazon rainforest produces more than 20% the world's oxygen supply. The Amazon River pushes so much water into the Atlantic Ocean that, more than one hundred miles at sea off the mouth of the river, one can dip fresh water out of the ocean. The volume of water in the Amazon river is greater than the next eight largest rivers in the world combined and three times the flow of all rivers in the United States. The water of Angel Falls (the World's highest) in Venezuela drops 3,212 feet (979 meters). They are 15 times higher than Niagara Falls.

 

Siberia contains more than 25% of the world's forests. Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Canada is an Indian word meaning "Big Village". Chances that a road is unpaved in the U.S.A : 1%, in Canada : 75%.

 

Brazil got its name from the nut, not the other way around. Spain literally means "the land of rabbits." St. Paul, Minnesota , was originally called Pig's Eye after a man named Pierre "Pig's Eye" Parent who set up the first business there.

 

Next to Warsaw, Chicago has the largest Polish population in the world. Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, carries the designation M-1, because it was the first paved road anywhere in the world. Damascus, Syria, was flourishing a couple of thousand years before Rome was founded in 753 BC, making it the oldest continuously inhabited city in existence. Istanbul, Turkey, is the only city in the world located on two continents. Los Angele's full name is El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula -- and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size: L.A. The term "The Big Apple" was coined by touring jazz musicians of the 1930's who used the slang expression "apple" for any town or city. Therefore, to play New York City is to play the big time - The Big Apple. There are more Irish in New York City than in Dublin , Ireland ; more Italians in New York City than in Rome, Italy ; and more Jews in New York City than in Tel Aviv, Israel. The first city to reach a population of 1 million people was Rome, Italy in 133 B.C. There is a city called Rome on every continent.

 

In the Sahara Desert , there is a town named Tidiest, Algeria, which did not receive a drop of rain for ten years. Technically though, the driest place on Earth is in the valleys of the Antarctic near Ross Island. There has been no rainfall there for two million years.

 

Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica . This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert. The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it, ice.), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.

 

The smallest island with country status is Pitcairn in Polynesia, at just 1.75 sq. miles/4,53 sq. km. And was first settled by the mutineer crew of the British ship Bounty in 1790. It has only about 50 citizens today all with last names of either Brown, Warren, Young, or Christian. The actual smallest sovereign entity in the world is the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (S.M.O.M). It is located in the city of Rome, Italy, has an area of two tennis courts, and has a population of 80, (the Vatican has about 100 people). S.M.O.M is a sovereign state under international law, just as the Vatican is. 

 

The deepest hole ever drilled by man is the Kola Super deep Borehole, in Russia. It reached a depth of 12,261 meters (about 40,226 feet or 7.62 miles). It was drilled for scientific research and gave up some unexpected discoveries, one of which was a huge deposit of hydrogen - so massive that the mud coming from the hole was boiling with it.

 

The distance from the center of the Earth to the Equator is 15 miles (21 Kilometers) more than to the North or South Pole. The Earth is not a sphere, it bulges at the waist because it is basically a blob of molten lava spinning in weightless space and covered by a paper-thin crust of cracked, dried and constantly moving solid rock. The thickness of the Earth's crust is less than 1% of the Earth's radius.
