Nature of Maryland
The state of Maryland is located in the South of the United States and belongs to the South Atlantic states. The territory of the state of Maryland is 32,133 km 2 (42nd place among the states of the USA).
Maryland is bordered by Pennsylvania to the north, Delaware to the east, Virginia and the District of Columbia to the south, and West Virginia to the south and west. In the southeast, the shores of Maryland are washed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Maryland is part of the United States Eastern Time Zone.
Although Maryland is small in area, its natural conditions are very diverse (it is no coincidence that one of its nicknames is “America in miniature”). There are three main physiographic regions in the state: the coastal lowlands in the east, the Piedmont Plateau in the central part, and the Appalachians in the west.
A chain of barrier islands stretches along the coast of Maryland, the largest of which is Assateague Island. More than half of the long (about 60 km) island, the northern part of which sinks towards Maryland, and the southern part towards Virginia, is occupied by a reserve, which is famous for its sandy beaches. Assateague Island is also famous for the fact that herds of wild horses live on it – Chincoteague ponies.
The Eastern Counties of Maryland are part of the United States Atlantic Lowlands. The Chesapeake Bay is located here – the largest estuary in the United States of America, formed by the Susquehanna River. The length of the bay is about 320 km, the width is from 4.5 km at its narrowest point to almost 50 km at its widest, the area is about 11,600 km 2, and the depth reaches 14 m. About 150 rivers and streams flow into the Chesapeake Bay, it divides Maryland’s lowlands into two sub-regions: on the Delmarva Peninsula, the essentially flat East Bank and the more hilly West Bank.
