The total percent of land of world under forest is
Forests cover about 31 percent of total land area of the world; the world's total forest area is just over 4 billion hectares.
What percentage of the total area of the earth?s surface is covered by the most important natural resource Land?
70% of earth is covered with water and 30% is left it means that is land and it is covered 30%.
What percentage of the surface of earth is occupied by Water?
About 71 percent of the Earth's surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water. Water also exists in the air as water vapor, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in you and your dog. Water is never sitting still.
A few reasons as to why there is uneven distribution of population in different parts of the world are given below. Pick out the most appropriate reason.
The shape of the land ('relief') Climate can be affected by mountains. Mountains receive more rainfall than low lying areas because as air is forced over the higher ground it cools, causing moist air to condense and fall out as rainfall. The higher the place is above sea level the colder it will be.
Give the most apt reason as to why plains and river valleys are densely populated.
Plains and river valleys offer suitable land for agriculture. Hence, these are the densely populated areas of the world. Land is used for different purposes such as agriculture, forestry, mining, building houses, roads and setting up of industries.
Given below are some reasons as to why the rocky slopes of the mountains and low-lying areas are sparsely populated. Pick out the correct reason from the following
As low lying areas and rocky slopes of mountains are more prone to floods. These areas has high risk of landslides. Moreover The mountains are thinly populated because of harsh climate. The slopes are steep.
Some important examples of the classification of land based on the relief are given below, select the one that does not belong to this category.
A plateau is an elevated area with a more or less levelled land on its top. It has a large area on its top and a steep slope on its sides.
They are also called as high plains or tablelands.
