Map of the physical geography of Alabama

The lands of Alabama have a remarkably diverse physical geography as a result of their formation. The mountain-forming processes that created what are now the Appalachian Mountains gave the state a hard-rock northern tier, with coal, iron and other deposits. To the south, the land has been formed by erosional deposition of the mountainous north and coastal deposition by the Gulf of Mexico.
