How has Europe benefited from its relative location and its major physical features?
Likewise, what physical features would be beneficial to Europe?
It is home to many navigable rivers, including the Rhine, Weser, Elbe, Oder, and Vistula. The climate supports a wide variety of seasonal crops. These physical features allowed for early communication, travel, and agricultural development.
Subsequently, question is, what are Northern Europe's main physical features? Some major landforms in Northern Europe include Northern European plain, Kjolen Mountains, Scandinavian Peninsula, Atlantic Highlands and Jutland Peninsula.
Also question is, how does physical geography in Europe affect the distribution of goods?
Navigable rivers and harbors provide many European cities with trading ports. Western Europe and Eastern Europe were divided by an imaginary boundary called the Iron Curtain.
How do mountains affect life in Europe?
Mountains generally have relatively low population densities. Temperatures and snowlines have been rising in Europe's mountains, affecting mountain species and habitats. Climate change, changes in land use and hydropower development all impact the water retention and runoff in mountains, which in turn affect lowlands.
