Physical features of Alaska

Alaska is one of the exclave states of the United States. IT is also the largest in terms of area, however it is the third less populated of all states. It is surrounded by the seas of the Arctic and Pacific Oceans, namely the Beaufort Sea on the north, the Chukchi Sea, Bering strait, Bering Sea on the west, and the large water body of the Pacific on the south. Its only land border can be found on the east side with Canada.

The highest peak of the whole North American continent is located within Alaska, called Denali, formerly Mount McKinley. It has a height of 6194 meters, which also makes it the third most prominent peaks of the globe. The two arcs of parallel mountain changes are the Alaska range , which is the southern of the two. The Brooks range lies to the north, and has summits of lower elevation. Mount Chamberlin is the highest of the Brooks Range, being 2749 meters.

The most dominant river of Alaska is the Yukon, coming from Canada, emptying into the Pacific just below the Seward Peninsula. Its main tributaries are the Koyukuk, Porcupine, Tanana rivers.
