Albanian Relief

 The Albanian relief distinguish for its forms, that are relics of the passing evolution, but also the forms that are recreate again in nowadays. 

Also the relief is distinguished for emphatic contrasts of relief and for the big splitting on the horizontal and vertical directions, but also the forms that are recreate again in nowadays. 

Also the relief is distinguished for emphatic contrasts of relief and for the big splitting on the horizontal and vertical directions. Its heights lies from sea level till in 2751 m (Korab mountain). So at it is look it has a big hypsometrical change and it is escorting with the climatically stages, plants and lands cover. These changes take the possibilities of agricultural plants cultivation that are very different from subtropical and thermophile plants (citrus, rice, cotton, etc), till the plants that want cool climate (rye, apple-tree, plum-tree).In the same time make possible all kinds of the tourism development from coastal tourism and till mountain tourism (green and white).

The country relief has a emphatic hilly-mountain character. Hillocks and mountains predominate and take about 80% of country area and these are in interior parts of the country. Medium height is 708 m. Low relief (till 200 m over sea level) takes 23.4% of the country, medium relief (from 200 m till 1000 m) takes 28.1% of the country and high relief (over 1000 m) takes 28.5% of the country and summits over 2000 m take 1% of the country. Hills, mountains, fields and valleys knitting with one another have formed a real mosaic. Nevertheless of their directions northwest-southeast the belts and ammassments do not do any problem to pass through these. The regions that are in these belts and ammassments, connect with many pass and valleys.

Fields have a small spread. They lie on the west part of the country, while in interior they are smaller and lie in tectonic subsidence of Plio-Quatemary and through big river valleys. Because of their small sternness and rivers gush, mainly of these fields had became swamps. The swamps were at coastal belt (with salt) and also in interior of the west field and in interior of the country (Maliq). From their draining, after second World War period it is profit over 50500 ha and improved other 200000 ha. After war period, our state leading by the politic of proofing the bread inside the country with every efforts, took in opening of new lands into the hills and mountains, only a small part of these is terraced. This had made possible the erosion activity and in general the soil degradation.
