When formulating LCSH for maps, these are the most common subdivisions that are used. The central portion of Majorca is a plain, bounded on the east and the southeast by broken hills. The Canary Islands, ninety kilometers off the west coast of Africa , are of volcanic origin. The large central islands, Tenerife and Gran Canaria , have the highest peaks. Teide, a dormant volcano , is the highest peak of Spain and the third largest volcano in the world from its base.

Of the roughly 1, rivers and streams in Spain, only the Tagus is more than kilometers long; all but 90 extend less than 96 kilometers.

These shorter rivers carry small volumes of water on an irregular basis, and they have seasonally dry river beds; however, when they do flow, they often are swift and torrential. Most major rivers rise in the mountains rimming or dissecting the Meseta Central and flow westward across the plateau through Portugal to empty into the Atlantic Ocean. One significant exception is the river with the most abundant flow in Spain, the Ebro , which flows eastward to the Mediterranean.

Rivers in the extreme northwest and in the narrow northern coastal plain drain directly into the Atlantic Ocean. The northwestern coastline is also truncated by rias, waterbodies similar to fjords. The major rivers flowing westward through the Meseta Central include the Duero , the Tagus , the Guadiana , and the Guadalquivir.

The Rio Guadalquivir is one of the most significant rivers in Spain because it irrigates a fertile valley, thus creating a rich agricultural area, and because it is navigable inland, making Seville the only inland river port for ocean-going traffic in Spain.

El Atazar Dam is a major dam built near Madrid to provide a water supply. Certain Spanish regions can be considered vulnerable to both flooding and erosion. Water stress or water lack, poses the greatest threat in Spain. Water scarcity is a significant issue in many regions throughout Spain and climate change may aggravate the problem, with longer periods of dry weather.

Supply problems regularly occur in the Jucar basin during summer. Overall, the regions in the south-east of Spain are particularly vulnerable to water shortages. Furthermore, large areas of the Mediterranean are affected by saltwater intrusion. Three main climatic zones can be separated, according to geographical situation and orographic conditions: Humid continental , alpine and tundra climates in the Pyrenees and Sierra Nevada , and a typical subtropical climate in the Canary Islands, varying from humid subtropical climates to desertic climates in most of the islands, and a tropical hot semi-arid climate in coastal parts, such as Tenerife or Gran Canaria.

The largest metropolitan areas, based on population, were: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
