State Overview

The Nevada extends almost completely in the Great Basin (Great Basin), one of the broad plateaus that are opened between the Rocky Mountains and the mountains Wasatch E, the Cascade chain and the Sierra Nevada to the W, dominated by numerous ridges oriented in the NS direction, with numerous peaks exceeding 3000 m (Duckwater Peak, 3410 m; Mount Jefferson, 3642 m; Wheeler Peak, 3982 m); however, the highest peak in the state is Boundary Peak (4005 m), on the border with California. The climate is sub-desert type, with very low rainfall (from 80 to 300 mm per year): the territory is in fact almost entirely areic or endorheic, with the exception of the northern sector, crossed by some tributaries of the Snake river, and of the south-eastern sector, crossed by some tributaries of the Colorado River, which forms the southeastern border of the state. On the plateau rivers are few and poor in water: the most important is the Humboldt River, which flows into the lake of the same name. The other lake basins are the Pyramid, the Walker and the Mead. The main economic resources are tourism, the exploitation of the subsoil (gold, copper, iron, antimony, silver, mercury, manganese, tungsten) and industry (chemical, wood, metallurgical, food), while a secondary role has the agriculture (cereals, potatoes, sugar beets, vegetables, fruit) and breeding (cattle, sheep). Important cities, in addition to the capital, are Las Vegas, Reno, North Las Vegas and Sparks.
