Lake

 

The lake — it is a closed recess sushi filled with water and which has no direct connection with the ocean. Unlike rivers, lakes — the reservoirs slow water exchange. The total area of the lakes of the Earth about 2.7 million km2, or about 1.8% of the land surface. Lakes are everywhere, but unevenly. On the geographical distribution of lakes is greatly influenced by the climate, causing them to diet and evaporation, as well as the factors contributing to the formation of the lake basin. In areas with a humid climate, many lakes, they are flowing, fresh and mostly running. In areas with a dry climate, ceteris paribus smaller lakes, often dry, often closed, and that is often salty. Thus, the distribution of lakes and their hydrochemical characteristics due to the geographical zoning .

The largest lake — Caspian (area 368 km2). The largest are lake superior. Huron and Michigan (Sat. America), Victoria (Africa ), The Aral Sea (Eurasia ). The most profound — Baikal (Eurasia) — 1620 m and Tanganyika (Africa) — 1470 m.

Lakes are often classified by four characteristics:

the origin of lake basins;

Amazing lake Huron

From the Huron river flows out St. Claire. It flows South and empties into the small lake St. Clair. Its length is 42 km and width of 39 km at a depth of 8 meters. This reservoir is not included in the list of Great lakes because of their small size. It entails a 45 km long river in Detroit. So she falls into a body of water called the Erie. Thus the lake and is the connection with the waterway originating in the Atlantic ocean.

Some geographers try to combine Huron and Michigan into one pond, as they have a single water level. They form as it were 2 communicating vessels and are similar in characteristics of water masses. Moreover, our pond water surface area occupies 2 place among the Great lakes. It is $ 59.6 thousand sq. km But the amount of fresh water is inferior to Michigan and equals 3538 cubic km Height above sea level is equal to 177 meters.

The length of the coastline is 6157 km, but it is with all the Islands, which number several thousand. The average depth is 59 meters and a maximum Continue reading
