What is the topography of Algeria?
The Tell, located on the coast, comprises fertile plains 50-100 miles wide, with a moderate climate and adequate rain. Two major chains of Atlas Mountains, running roughly east to west, and reaching 7,000 feet, enclose a dry plateau region. Below lies the Sahara, mostly desert with major mineral resources.

Topography is the shape or configuration of the land, its physicalfeatures represented on a map by contour lines, hypsometric tints,and relief shading. Topography has several related meanings : . Detailed, precise description of a place or region. . Graphic representation of the surface features… of a place orregion on a map, indicating their relative positions andelevations. . A description or an analysis of a structured entity, showingthe relations among its components: In the topography of theeconomy, several depressed areas are revealed. . The surface features of a place or region. . The surface features of an object: The topography of acrystal. . The surveying of the features of a place or region. .

The topography is so subdued that a broad sheet of water slowly flows over and through the porous limestone bedrock on its way to the sea, rather than following well-defined valleys. Most of the park is actually covered with water during normal wet seasons, while dry winters cause fresh water to dwi…ndle to a few open areas crowded with wildlife. (MORE)
A karst topography is that which composes of limestone and itsassociated features and structures. â¢Karst topography and caves develop in limestone rocks due to theirsolubility in dilute acidic groundwater.. â¢The solubility of limestone in water and weak acid solutions leadsto karst la…ndscapes.. â¢Regions overlying limestone bedrock tend to have fewer visibleabove-ground sources (ponds and streams), as surface water easilydrains downward through joints in the limestone.. â¢While draining, water and organic acid from the soil slowly (overthousands or millions of years) enlarges these cracks, dissolvingthe calcium carbonate and carrying it away in solution.. â¢Most cave systems are through limestone bedrock.. â¢Cooling groundwater or mixing of different groundwater will alsocreate conditions suitable for cave formation.. Karst topography occurs when the underlying bedrock is dissolved.The bedrock is made of gypsum, limestone or dolomite. This causessinkholes and caverns to form. (MORE)

mountain - highest land form volcano - high form of land The topography is extremely varied, with volcanic mountain masses forming the cores of most of the larger islands. The range culminates in Mt. Pulog (elevation 2,928 m/9,606 ft) in northern Luzon and in Mt. Apo, the highest point in the Phi…lippines (elevation 2,954 m/9,692 ft), in Mindanao. A number of volcanoes are active, and the islands have been subject to destructive earthquakes. Lowlands are generally narrow coastal strips except for larger plains in Luzon (Cagayan Valley and Central Plains), Mindanao (Cotabato and Davao-Agusan valleys), and others in Negros and Panay. Rivers are short and generally seasonal in flow. Important ones are the Cagayan, Agno, Abra, Bicol, and Pampanga in Luzon and the Cotabato and Agusan in Mindanao. Flooding is a frequent hazard. The shores of many of the islands are embayed (Manila Bay is one of the finest harbors in East Asia); however, several islands lack adequate harbors and require offshore lightering for sea transport. The only two inland water bodies of significant size are Laguna de Bay in Luzon and Lake Sultan Alonto in Mindanao. . The Philippines is a unique combination of varied topography. Luzon and Mindanao is distinguished by narrow valleys, alluvial plains. rolling hills and high mountains. The highest mountains are found in the larger islands which are Luzon and Mindanao that the mountain ranges are running north to south. The Philippines is an archipelagic country found in south east Asia. (MORE)

Its solid core is composed of metals and silicate rock, and the core is in turn covered an icy mantle of methane ammonia and water ice. Uranus, like Jupiter and Saturn, has a system of rings, total of 11. But, the ring system is much more complex than that of Jupiter, but less so than Saturn's spect…acular system. The system around Uranus seems to be relatively young and probably did not form at the same time as the planet. The particles that make up the rings may be the remnants of a moon that was either broken by a high velocity impact or torn apart by the gravitational effects of Uranus. (MORE)
If you are meaning why are there hills, mountains, and valleys, then the answer to your question is: wind and water. The sun heats water, and it evaporates into the atmosphere. This water then falls back to the ground in the form of rain. When it rains at any elevation above sea level, the water …then flows from high elevation down to sea level. The water then groups together and forms rivers which cut the ground and wash loose dirt down the river along with it. In areas where there is no water( the desert) the wind is the primary erosion factor. The wind picks up small particles of sand and hurls it through the air and smacks it into rock, which breaks off minuscule particles. These two factors are the main causes of erosion, which in turn is what causes topography. (MORE)

With a territory of 110,994 square kilometers (42,855 sq mi), Bulgaria ranks as the 16th-largest country in Europe. Several mountainous areas define the landscape, most notably the Stara Planina (Balkan) and Rodopi mountain ranges, as well as the Rila range, which includes the highest peak in the Ba…lkan region, Musala. In contrast, the Danubian plain in the north and the Upper Thracian Plain in the south represent Bulgaria's lowest and most fertile regions. The 378-kilometer (235 mi) Black Sea coastline covers the entire eastern bound of the country. Geographically and in terms of climate, Bulgaria features notable diversity, with the landscape ranging from the Alpine snow-capped peaks in Rila, Pirin and the Balkan Mountains to the mild and sunny Black Sea coast; from the typically continental Danubian Plain (ancient Moesia) in the north to the strong Mediterranean climatic influence in the valleys of Macedonia and in the lowlands in the southernmost parts of Thrace. Bulgaria comprises portions of the separate regions known in classical times as Moesia, Thrace, and Macedonia. About 30% of the land is made up of plains, while plateaus and hills account for 41%. The mountainous southwest of the country has two alpine ranges-Rila and Pirin-and further east stand the lower but more extensive Rhodope Mountains. The Rila range includes the highest peak of the Balkan Peninsula, Musala, at 2,925 meters (9,596 ft); the Balkan mountain chain runs west-east through the middle of the country, north of the Rose Valley. Hilly countryside and plains lie to the southeast, along the Black Sea coast, and along Bulgaria's main river, the Danube, to the north. Strandzha forms the tallest mountain in the southeast. Few mountains and hills exist in the northeast region of Dobrudzha. (MORE)

Four-fifths of Peninsular Malaysia is covered by rainforest and swamp. The northern regions are divided by a series of mountain ranges that rise abruptly from the wide, flat coastal plains. The highest peaks, GunUng Tahan (2,190 m/7,185 ft) and Gunung Korbu (2,183 m/7,162 ft), are in the north… central region. The main watershed follows a mountain range about 80 km (50 mi) inland, roughly parallel to the west coast. The rivers flowing to the east, south, and west of this range are swift and have cut some deep gorges, but on reaching the coastal plains they become sluggish. The western coastal plain contains most of the country's population and the main seaports, George Town (on the offshore Pulau Pinang) and Kelang (formerly Port Swettenham). The eastern coastal plain is mostly jungle and lightly settled. It is subject to heavy storms from the South China Sea and lacks natural harbors. Sarawak consists of an alluvial and swampy coastal plain, an area of rolling country interspersed with mountain ranges, and a mountainous interior. Rain forests cover the greater part of Sarawak. Many of the rivers are navigable. Sabah is split in two by the Crocker Mountains, which extend north and south some 48 km (30 mi) inland from the west coast, rising to over 4,100 m (13,450 ft) at Mt. Kinabalu, the highest point in Malaysia. Most of the interior is covered with tropical forest, while the western coastal area consists of alluvial flats making up the main rubber and rice land.

This is more of a little topography with reasoning of how it helps Lebanon and how it's used: Lebanon has many plains, where farmers plant. Heavy downpour in Mount Lebanon of winter rains has formed many deep clefts and valleys in the soft rock. The terrain has profoundly affected the country's hi…story. East of the Mount Lebanon Range is the Bekaa Valley, an extremely fertile flatland where farmers have learned that the soil is fertile and that the plants could grow large with flat land and lots of space to grow in. Lebanon contains few rivers, and its harbors are mostly shallow and small. Abundant springs, found to a height of 1,500 m (4,900 ft) on the western slopes of the Lebanon Mountains, provide water for cultivation up to this height. Such rivers as Nahr Abou Ali, Nahr Ibrahim, Nahr el Kelb, Nahr Beirut, Nahr ed Dam our, etc. flow into Mediterranean, forming deep ravines. The coastal plain along the Mediterranean is narrow, and is found only around such cities as Tripoli, Beirut, Saida, Tyre, etc. (MORE)
