The United States shares land borders with Canada to the north and Mexico in the south. According to various sources, the U.S. is ranked the world's third largest in total area, after Russia and Canada. However, other sources, including Encyclopędia Britannica, list China as larger than the U.S. This dispute seems to hinge on Taiwan, without which China takes fourth place.
The United States' landscape is extremely varied. In the east, rolling hills and temperate forests prevail, transitioning to prairies, boreal forests, and the relatively young Rocky Mountains in the west, with savanna and desert-including the Grand Canyon-among the more arid landscapes in the southwest. In the south, especially in Florida, subtropical forests and marshlands can be found.
Alaska contains some of the most dramatic and untapped scenery in the country. Prominent mountain ranges rise up sharply from broad, flat tundra plains. Numerous volcanoes can be found throughout the Alexander and Aleutian Islands south and west of the Alaskan mainland. Hawaii, far to the south of Alaska in the Pacific Ocean, is a chain of tropical, volcanic islands popular as a tourist attraction.
Major hydrographic features include the five Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River and seaway in the northeast bordering with Canada. In addition, the Mississippi-Missouri River (the world's fourth longest river system) snakes through the central U.S.
The United States is affected by a large variety of natural phenomena yearly. Some of the most common problems include tornados, hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes, particularly around California and southern Alaska. Although drought is rare, it is not uncommon and more recently, the western U.S. experienced widespread drought in 1999-2004, and signs of a major, long-term drought across the Great Plains have developed. The American Northwest sees the highest concentration of active volcanoes in the United States.
