The southernmost US state is Hawaii, found in the tropics of the Pacific Ocean. Florida is only the southernmost of the "continental" (49) states, or of the "contiguous" 48 states. Hawaii
ALASKA, including the Aleutian Islands, has both the northernmost and westernmost points of the US, and since some of its territory crosses the 180th meridian (the International Date Line), it is also technically the easternmost state.. HAWAII is the closest of the 50 states to the equator, so it i…s the southernmost.. (see link) ( Full Answer )
The city of Hilo in Hawaii (on the "big island") is the farthest south in the US states. The town has a population of about 45,000. It is south of the Tropic of Cancer at about 19.7 N 155.1 W. The capital city of Charlotte Amalie in the US Virgin Islands has a population of about 18,000 and is sl…ightly farther south (18.3 N, 65 W). The village of Tafuna in American Samoa is the only major US community south of the equator (about 14.3 S 170.7 W). ( Full Answer )
Glacier National Park was established in a bill signed by President William Howard Taft in May, 1910.. The park fell to the management of the National Park Service upon the agency's inception in 1916, and it is still managed by the U.S. National Park Service.. In 1932, Glacier National Park joined… with Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta to form the world's first international peace park. Although there are certain parallel goals between the parks and some cooperation on issues, both parks collect separate fees and are managed by their respective federal agencies.. Today, the park is also recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve.. Geologically speaking, the park's landscape was formed by two processes: mountain-building and glaciation. A very long time ago, a huge slab of rock thrust upward and to the east; this formation is called the Lewis Overthrust. This overthrust formation contained all the rock in the mountains in the park today, plus a large amount of rock no longer found there because of erosion. During the Pleistocene Epoch, a cooler and wetter period in North America's geologic history, massive ice sheets descended from Canada and shaped much of the northern United States' landscape. The mountains created their own separate glaciers where moisture and lower temperatures at higher altitudes formed their own glaciers in the mountains. The glaciers scoured out the rock over time and created classic U-shaped valleys in the park, chiselled the mountains, and created the fascinating landscape in the park. The glaciers remaining in the park today are thought not to be of this geologic age, but are instead remnants of the "Little Ice Age," which only ended in 1850. The glaciers in the park today are expected to disappear by 2030. ( Full Answer )
Key West is the farthest south you can get in the 48 contiguous states, but go outside the US and you will find that in Hawaii, on the Island of Hawai'i, there are several towns, and cities located there. Hilo, Captain Cook, and Ocean View are to name a few that are even further South than Key West.… ( Full Answer )
The second largest man made lake in the US is Lake Powell which islocated in between Arizona and Utah. The lake covers 161,390 acres.The largest man made lake is Lake Mead.
Florida Hawaii Hawaii Hawaii is the southernmost of all 50 states Florida is the southernmost of the 48 contiguous states Florida: The Florida Keys is the most southern point in the United States.
well a glacier is formed when layers of ice build up over hundreds of years and form a large compact block of ice.
Glaciers are useful to people because some of the best preserved fossils are found within them. More importantly, though, glaciers are of great importance to many people because they reflect large amounts of solar radiation due to their high albedo which reduces global warming. Also, glaciers are ex…tremely important for people with investments in or living in coastal areas because they serve as a storage of water that if melted will inundate many current coastlines.

Glacier National Park's name reflects its glacially-formed topography: chiseled mountain peaks, broad u-shaped valleys, and beautiful lakes.
Glaciers mainly consist of frozen water, ice and to a lesser extent sedimentary particles that they carry.
The great lakes were formed from glaciers by the glaciers slowly melting and taking rocks with thme scratching at the earth.
Glaciers hold a large amount of water. If they melted (with global warming that's likely in part) the released water would raise the sea level, swamping some low-lying countries such as Bangladesh, and threatening many coastal cities such as New York, London (England) and New Orleans.
Key West, Florida for the contiguous States and the Big Island of Hawaii for the US States.
I believe the answer is one of these three: The Southernmost point of the continental United States is Key West, Florida (24 degrees latitude). The Southernmost point in Hawaii is near Nahelu, in the island of Hawaii (18.5 degrees latitude). The Southernmost point in Puerto Rico is Bahia de Jo…bos (18.15 degrees latitude).

including lake panelapy there is 24. lake panelapy was a lake that was only a lake in winter and dried out in the summer. the shire of the town in Texas known as kalamunda, decided to line the bottem with clay so that the water wouldn't go away in summer.
Valleys, mountains,canyon's, and hilly areas are all made by glaciers. One of the most outstanding is Yosemite National Park. The entire park was created by a glacier and it is wonderful.
It is made of compressed snow which has accumulated and becomes like ice, plus it contains varying amounts of rock and sediment.
There are five great lakes that are in North America. Lake Eerie isthe lake the is the most southern but not by much. Lake Michigan isa close second.
A tarn (or corrie loch) is a mountain lake or pool, formed in a cirque excavated by a glacier.
Yes Oceans,Glaciers,Lakes, and Rivers are part of Earth;s hemisphere because the hemisphere involve land, water and sky. Therefor they are part of Earth's hemisphere.
yes from the cintinental period a glacier swept acrost and made ahole and the glacier melted and formed the salt lakes
The southernmost state is actually Hawaii , which is south of the Tropic of Cancer while all of Florida is above it. Florida is said to be the southernmost of the "continental" states (49), or of the "contiguous" states (48).
Well the runoff from melting glaciers provide water to many areas. If the glaciers disappear many of the worlds rivers will dry up.
Glacial lakes can be green as a result of grinded minerals thatsupport a large population of algae.
There are three that are very close, but one is slightly farther south. Austin, Texas is the southernmost capital, located near 30.27 N 97.8 W Tallahassee, Florida is located near 30.45 N 88.2 W Mobile, Alabama is located near 30.69 N 88.0 W
While the largest man-made lakes in the U.S. are situated in the Western U.S. (mostly branching off of the Colorado River) there are some substantial lakes in the Eastern U.S. as well. The largest man-made lake in the East is the Kentucky Lake, situated in Marshall, Calloway, Livingston, Lyon, and T…rigg counties, southwestern Kentucky, U.S.; its southern extremity overlaps into Tennessee. The lake is 184 miles (296 km) long and has more than 2,300 miles (3,700 km) of shoreline; its average area is about 260 square miles (673 square km). It was created in 1944 when the Kentucky Dam impounded the Tennessee River. ( Full Answer )
glaciers are made of ice because the definition of glacier is a block of ice left alone to freeze for thousands of years, so the glacier needs to be made out of ice
They form due to cooling in cold areas like kashmir please do answer my question how can we practise democracy at school level
Unlike a river, a glacier of ice may be many thousands of feet thick. This creates a significant pressure on the bed of the glacier - the rock on wich it rests. At the base of a glacier is a quantity of rock rubble, which is thus ground along the bed under the weight of the ice above. This glacie…r bed is able to deepen a portion of its course, much deeper that its natural outlet. Lake Manapouri for example, has a surface level of about 177m above sea level, but its deepest point is 444m. My local lake Wanaka, is 150km from the (drainage) coast has a surface level of just under 300m, but the deepest point is a number of metres below that. The glacier that created this lake was over 1000m thick - easily read from scouring of the mountains around. Eventually in a warming period, the glacier retreats and in that phase retreats quite fast, much faster than the river inflows can fill it with gravel and silt. But in the long run, it will be filled. All lakes are temporary features (land warping excepted). The same is true of Fiords, they are quite deep a few kilometres in from the coast, but at the point where they enter the ocean, their bed rises sharply as any ice beyond that is broken off by buoyancy processes. Also but minor, the glacier creating the fiord dumps its residual moraine debris at that point, as a mound at the mouth. So a fiord is a lake without a confined outlet. ( Full Answer )
The Great Lakes are estimated to have been formed at the end of the last ice age (about 10,000 years ago), when the Laurentide ice sheet receded.
The glaciers are called, well there are 3 main glaciers there are Victoria, Aberdeen and Lefroy. ~Jennifer~ P.S. Hope this helped!
the glciers were first in Antarctica leaving by the first ice age and then after the ice ace they all started to melt a cm. every 20 yrs
No, there are no glaciers in Lake Superior. However, glaciers CREATED Lake Superior, in fact, all of the Great Lakes. Lake Superior may have large floes of ice in winter.
No, The Grand Canyon was made by a very large river. I do believe it was the Colorado River.
Glaciers are formed from snowfall, which in time consolidates into ice. Commonly a glacier will carry a burden of moraine rocks that have fallen from the mountains or were entrapped in avalanches.

No, Lake Erie is a glacial lake. That means over thousands ofyears, glaciers approached and receded across what is now Canadaand now the US. The friction of ice moving across the land carvedout 5 basins. At first, the basins were small and filled with rainwater and water that melted as the glaciers …receded. The basins gotbigger and deeper over those thousands of years. We now call thosebasins The Great Lakes, one of which is Lake Erie. By the way, a lake can never be a glacier, just as a glacier cannever be a lake. But glaciers can carve out deep holes where lakescan form. Lake Erie averages a 62 foot depth, and 210 feet at it'sdeepest. ( Full Answer )
A glacial fiord. Norway has lots of them, but there is also one on the US East Coast. Somes Sound on Mt Desert Island in Maine is a glacial fiord. It is also a very pretty area with lots of very wealthy people having summer properties there. Mt. Desert Island is just barely an island since the inlan…d waterway separating it from the mainland is just a creek. ( Full Answer )
it is formed by lots of diffrent seas and oceans it can also be formed by a puddle
The Great Lakers were ultimately formed by glaciers. The AtlanticOcean was not. It was formed by continental rifting. Glaciers couldnot form a whole new ocean basin like that.
No it is not as of January 2013 the U.S. government still referred to Puerto Rico as unincorporated
No lakes are truly bottomless but there are some that are given that term. Lake Pend Oreille is the fifth largest glacier lake in the US, and is located in the Idaho Panhandle. Great Slave Lake in Canada is also given this name.
The glaciers, by slowly moving, dig into the land. Water from asource might begin to flow down that long hole caused by theglacier. This is how a glacier can make rivers.
No. Sand dunes are typically made by the wind, blowing lightweightgrains of sand and soil. Glaciers created several types oflandforms, including moraines and drumlins, out of a wide range ofparticle sizes, from rock grains to boulders.
Contiguous refers to states that are touching. Hawaii and Alaskaare non-contiguous U.S. states because they do not touch any otherstate. Each of the 48 contiguous U.S. states touch at least oneother state. Florida is the southern most contiguous U.S. state.
Glaciers are not made of rock; they are made of ice. Glaciers cancontain rocks, but not of any particular type. Rather, they carrywhatever type of rock they are going over or have gone over.
No, glaciers form from snow that falls high in the mountains thenconsolidates and refreezes into ice under the weight of latersnows. This ice and snow then flows down the mountains into valleysproducing a characteristic U-shaped erosion pattern in thosevalleys.
