My name is Elizabeth Monet. We are traveling through the elements of china. So here we are at The Tibet-Qinghai Plateau. This area is often called the "Roof Of The World" because its average elevation of 13,500 feet is more than two miles above sea level. Since the mountain is so high, the climate is very cold and has dry and thin air. The plateau is also a rocky land surrounded by towering mountains,
We now are at The Taklimaken Desert. Covers an area of about 105,000 square miles and is considered one of the most dangerous deserts. The name actually means "once you go in, you will never go out" pretty scary. There are lots of huge
This desert is over 500,000 miles long and is one of the largest deserts. But this desert has way less sand dunes then the Talimakan desert. This desert is as well mostly stony and vegetation is pretty small. Plants would be small and widely spaced apart.
The plain looks good, but generally the plain is too cold here at The Northeastern Plain, so you wouldn't be able to grow crops The weather is actually cold and dry. Wow. Back then the grass was mostly prairie grass, which provided food for horses, sheeps and other animals as well. When winter comes the water would froze and people would use the river as roads.
We are here at the North China Plain, one of the two major regions in Inner China. The temperature is pretty normal in summer its very warm and when winter comes it gets pretty cold. The reason why its yellow is because the ground is covered in yellow limestone silt, and sometimes this region is called "Land of the Yellow Earth." This river is also one of the worlds largest river and could be worlds muddiest.
Our last stop. The Chang Jiang Basins. There are lots of people that use this river to transport goods between eastern and western areas of the region. The climate in Chang Jiang Basin is actually warm and wet. Vegitation is kinda low, theres a thick rainforest and very little space for growing crops.
