What Are the Major Landforms of the Southeast Region?

WorldAtlas identifies the Everglades, the Great Smoky Mountains, Lake Okeechobee, and the Mississippi River Delta as the primary landforms in the Southeast region of the United States. Only the southern portion of the Appalachian Mountains, which includes the Great Smoky Mountains, is regarded a prominent landform of the Southeast United States.

According to Wikipedia, the Mississippi River Delta is the seventh largest delta in the world and encompasses more than 2.7 million acres of lush coastal wetland. This delta is drained by the Mississippi River, one of the longest rivers in North America. However, due to the length of the Mississippi River, only the delta is regarded to be a southeast landform.

According to USA Today, Lake Okeechobee in Florida is the fourth largest lake in the United States and has a surface size of around 730 square miles. Lake Okeechobee is Florida’s most significant supply of fresh water. The lush Everglades, the greatest subtropical wilderness in the United States, are near to Lake Okeechobee.

The Great Smoky Mountains are an Appalachian subrange. These mountains form the border between Tennessee and North Carolina. This mountain range is occasionally referred to as the Smoky Mountains and is usually abbreviated to “Smokies.”
