Alabama Topography

The name Alabama comes from the Choctaw language, and means "thicket clearers".  Northern Alabama lies in the heavily wooded Appalachian uplands.  A wide band of rich, fertile soil crosses the central portion of the state while the Gulf coastal plain in southwestern Alabama consists largely of swampland.  The Mobile River and its tributaries — the Alabama River and the Tombigbee River — form the chief river system.  For additional Alabama travel and tourism information, visit the official Alabama tourism site and Alabama Atlas.
