The mental picture of the Appalachian Mountains most of us have is that of long linear ridges and valleys that form a belt some 25 to 100 km wide through Pennsylvania/Virginia/West Virginia and the Carolinas. With relief of 300 to 1000 m or more, these ridges stand out as distinct mountains. This page describes the general geomorphology and geology of the Appalachian Mountains with the use of text ...

Much like El Nino, the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) varies in a rhythmic pattern from decade to decade. The NAO is the relationship between a high-pressure system over the Azores Islands and a low-pressure system over Iceland. This site uses text, photographs, and maps to explain what the NAO is and how it affects weather in Europe, the United States, and as far away as the Middle East. Full description.
