Great Britain Climate 1.Marine Climate –its temperate—warm summer, cool and wet winter 2.It is affected by a warm current--The Gulf Stream– which keeps it warm for its latitude) 3.The mild climate keeps ports free of ice and open for trade all year.
Russia- Population 1.Most people live in the western part of Russia near the major cities and along rivers (Moscow, St. Petersburg) 2.The urban land is in the west but most of Russia is rural. 3.Most people live inland since it’s coasts border the Arctic Ocean and are too cold.
Russia- Climate 1.4 climate zones: tundra, subarctic, humid continental, and semi- arid 2. Russia is not really affected by a current. There are some cold currents on its northern coast, but it’s too far inland to get the benefits of the Gulf Stream.
Russia- Resources 1. Energy resources are located throughout the country but those in the tundra (where there is permafrost) are hard to extract from the ground. 2. Has oil, gas, coal and many minerals/metals
Russia- Physical Features 1.Ural Mountains split the European part of the country from the Asian part of the country. -Also, the country is mostly partly frozen tundra 2. Russia’s large size and cold climate make it difficult for Russians to use and trade their resources. - The lack of a coastline makes trade hard. The only coastline they have is the Arctic Ocean which is usually frozen, so they really need a warm-water port.
Germany- Population 1.All over! Especially: along the coast and near major cities. Germany is the most densely populated country in Europe. 2.Urban land spans the whole western part of the county, plus the North East and east-central part of the country. Rural land is also present (North European Plain) 3.People live equally among the coast and inland
Germany- Climate 1. Marine climate- temperate (warm summers, cold wet winters) 2. The proximity to the ocean (Gulf Stream) keeps Germany warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It has arable land for farming.

Germany-Physical Features 1.North European Plain, Rhine River, Danube River 2.It is at the center of Western Europe and therefore close with several important trading partners—rivers and highways make trade easy. It also has access to the sea for shipping to other continents.
Italy-Population 1.In the north by major cities, along the coasts by major cities 2.Urban area is in the north and on the western coast. 3.People live on the coast and inland in the north and along the coast in the west and south.
Italy- Resources 1.Small farms cover much of the country. The coast for fishing opportunities. There is also natural gas in the middle of the county. 2.Crops like grapes and olives, some natural gas and metals
Italy- Physical Features 1. The Alps, it’s a peninsula 2. It has access to the sea, which is helpful for trade. The Alps to the north create a trade barrier for land trade.
