Hi, I'm Ai Bao. This is the Tibet-Qing Plateau. This area is often called the "Roof of the world and covers almost a quarter of china's land. Because the mountain is so high the climate is very cold.
Hi, I'm Chao Ah. In the Tibet-Qing Plateau there are two major rivers, the Huang He river also known as the Yellow river, and the Chang Jiang river also known as the Yangtze. Even though these rivers run through the plateau, the soil is very dry.
These are the Northwestern Deserts. They consist of the Taklimakan, and Gobi Deserts. The Taklimakan is one of the most dangerous deserts in the world, legend says that two armies and 300 cities are buried beneath it's sands. The desert is very dry and doesn't have much vegetation.
The Gobi Desert stretches over 500,000 square milles, and covers part of china and present day Mongolia. Unlike the Taklimakan desert the Gobi doesn't have many sand dunes. Plants in the Gobi tend to be very small and widely spaced apart.
The Northeastern Plain is located in present day Mongolia. The vegetation in the plain is mostly prairie grass. There are many different climates in the plain's. Most of the plain is to cold and dry to grow plants.
There are two major rivers that run through the great plains. These rivers are the Liao, and the Sungari. The Liao river is small and only small boats can sail on it. The Sungari is deep and can carry larger boats.
This is the North China Plain. The weather on the plain ranges from warm to very cold. The plain is often called the "land of the yellow" because the ground is covered in yellow limestone silt.
The Huang He is one of the longest and muddiest rivers in the world. It runs through the plains and fertilizes the soil. The plains are a great place to grow crops.
This is the Chang Jiang Basin. The basins are low coastal plains, they are near a river called the Chang Jiang. People used to use the river to transport goods.
The Chang Jiang River starts in the western mountains, much like the Huang He River. The river flows through three plains and then finally settles in a rich delta. It makes the land very fertile. The climate in the basin is wet and warm.
