Apennines Mountains

Physical geography

The Apennines are located along almost all of the Italian peninsula. The Apennines stretches for 830 miles. Some characteristics of the Apennines are that most of the mountain is made up of sedimentary rock. Also another characteristic is that along the side of the mountain range a volcanic change has emerged.

Human geography

The Apennines have effected the people living in this area for centuries, by having it be hard on transportation with it in the whole center of Italy. Some resources that come from this mountain range include logging from the dense forests in this region.


The connection between human and physical geography is that the physical feature that make up this mountain like the dense forests connect to the logging and profit from the wood.
