Hydrography of the United States
There are many rivers and lakes in the United States of America. The flow of rivers from the territory of the continental states of the United States occurs in three oceans: the Atlantic, the Pacific and the Arctic.
The basin of the Atlantic Ocean, into which most of the rivers of the United States drain, is divided into the basins of the Atlantic coast, the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. On the Atlantic coast, the Merrimack, Delaware, Hudson, Potomac, and Savannah rivers flow into the ocean, among others. The Saint Lawrence River drains from the Great Lakes. The Mississippi, the largest river in the United States, flows into the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Rio Grande, Brazos, Sabin, Trinity and others.
The basin of the Arctic Ocean includes a small area of the United States in the area of the Laurentian Uplands.
The Pacific Ocean basin (in which the Colorado River basin flows into the Gulf of California is distinguished) and the Atlantic Ocean are separated by the Rocky Mountains (the so-called ” Continental Divide “). Mount Triple Divide Peak (“Peak of Three Borders”) in Montana got its name due to the fact that water from its slopes flows not only into the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, but also into the Hudson Bay of the Arctic Ocean. The Columbia, Colorado, Sacramento and other rivers flow into the Pacific Ocean.
In the region of the Intermountain Plateaus in the Western United States, there is a large endorheic region known as the “Great Basin”.
Alaska ‘s rivers drain into the Pacific and Arctic oceans. The state’s largest river is the Yukon.
