Nature of Arkansas

The state of Arkansas is located in the South of the United States and belongs to the southwestern central states. The territory of Arkansas – 137,002 km 2 (29th place in the USA).

Arkansas is bordered by Missouri to the north, Tennessee and Mississippi to the east, Louisiana to the south, and Texas and Oklahoma to the west.

Arkansas can be divided into five major physical geographic regions: the Mississippi River Valley, the Ozark Plateau, the Arkansas River Valley, the Washita Mountains, and the Gulf Coastal Plain.

The Mississippi Valley is often referred to as the Arkansas Delta. It is formed by the Mississippi River, which has changed its course many times over the millennia, creating a lowland with extremely rich alluvial (floodplain) soils. Terraces, formed by outcrops of older rocks, rise above the almost flat plain in places.

A narrow strip of low (up to 150 meters) hills stretches across the Mississippi Valley from north to south – Crowley’s Ridge.

The very fertile lands of the Mississippi Valley in Arkansas are almost entirely used for agriculture.

Located in the northwest of Arkansas (as well as in the neighboring states of Missouri and Oklahoma), the Ozark plateau is a limestone plateau indented by numerous rivers and streams, and also almost completely covered with forests, mainly oak and pine. In Arkansas, the Ozarks are divided into the Boston Mountains to the south, the Springfield Plateau to the northwest, and the Salem Plateau to the northeast. The highest point of the Ozark Plateau (about 780 meters above sea level) is located in the Boston Mountains.

On the plateau of the Ozarks in Arkansas is the National Forest (reserve) of St. Francis, created back in 1908 by the twenty-sixth US President Theodore Roosevelt.

The Ozark Plateau, together with the Washita Mountains located to the south, behind the Arkansas River Valley, form the Inner Highlands – the only major mountainous region of the United States between the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains.

The Arkansas River is one of the largest tributaries of the Mississippi and the largest river in the state (as well as the sixth longest river in the United States).

The Valley is a plain located between the Ozark Plateau in the north and the Washita Mountains in the south. Ridges of hills and low mesas (with flat tops) mountains rise above the valley, the width of which reaches sixty to seventy kilometers.

The Arkansas River Valley, like the Arkansas Mississippi Delta, has very fertile alluvial lands. There are explored reserves of coal and natural gas.
