PostSubject: Geography ( Russia ).   Sun Jun 29, 2008 5:07 am




Russia is the largest country in the
world with the total area 17 075 400 square kilometers (over 6.5 million
square miles), that is about 1,8 times the size of the
USA. It's situated in the
Eastern part of Europe and Northern part
of Asia. The main part of the European territory of Russia is situated
within the Eastern European Plain (Vostochno-Evropeyskaya Ravnina).
The southern border is on the North Caucasus. The main part of the
Asian area of Russia is on Zapadno-Sibirskaya Ravnina and
Sredne-Sibirskoye Ploskogor'ye. The territory of Russia spans
through 11 times zones.

Russia borders with Norway, Finland,
Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Ukraine, Georgia,
Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China and North Korea by land,
and with Sweden, Turkey, Japan and the USA by sea.

The climate of Russia varies from the
steppes
in the south and coastal on the north-west through humid
continental in much of European Russia; sub arctic in Siberia to
tundra climate in the polar north and monsoon on the Far East. The
average temperatures of January vary from 0 to -50C, July - from
1 to 25C. Many regions of Siberia and Far East are situated in
the permafrost zone. Thus, Russia is one of the coldest
countries in the world. The town of
Oimyakon in north-east Siberia is the coldest inhabited place on
earth, with temperatures recorded at more than 70
C
below zero
. The inhabited areas are mostly in the
continental climate zones with long freezing winters (5-6 months
long) and short warm summers.

The largest rivers: Volga, Lena,
Irtysh, Yenisey, Ob, Amur.

The largest lakes: Caspean Sea,
Aral'skoye More, Baykal, Ladozhskoye, Onezhskoye.

Russia has an extremely wide natural
resource base including major deposits of oil, natural gas, coal,
strategic minerals, timber, diamonds and gold. There are 85
nature reserves and 25 national parks.
