Land and Resources
Lithuania consists of a low-lying plain broken by low hills
in the west and south. Almost the entire territory of the country is less
than 200 m (about 655 ft) in elevation. Lithuania contains many lakes and
rivers, 22 of which have a total length of 100 km (about 60 mi) or more. The
most extensive of these is the Nemunas (Neman), a major river that supplies
the country with hydroelectric power. Marshes and swamps are prevalent,
especially in the north and west, although half of all original wetlands
have been drained. The climate is dominated by marine influences, but
conditions are more variable in the eastern portion of the republic. In the
west summers are cooler, and winters are milder. Average annual
precipitation ranges from less than 600 mm (about 20 in) per year in the
center of the country to more than 850 mm (about 35 in) per year in the
west. Forests, which occupy about one-fourth of total land area, support an
extensive array of wildlife, including deer, wolves, foxes, and wild boar.
Minor oil and gas deposits have been found near the coast, and offshore
areas may contain much larger deposits.
