North America

North America, the northern continent of the Americas, is bounded by the Arctic Ocean on the north, the Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea on the west, and the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico on the east. North America has a vast and varied landscape, including the mountainous region that stretches along the entire west coast; the Great Plains (prairie and steppe landscape) forming a band down the centre, from the Canadian Arctic to the Gulf of Mexico; the flat, elevated plateau of the Canadian Shield (a geologically stable area of ancient rock covered by a thin layer of soil) in the northeast, reaching north from the Great Lakes to the Arctic Ocean; and the diverse eastern region, which includes the Appalachian Mountains and a expansive section of coastal lowlands. Advantageous climatic conditions, fertile soils and extensive irrigation that has transformed otherwise barren regions into highly productive ones, has led North America to become the world’s leading producer of corn, wheat, tobacco, cotton and meat.
