The area is 146,200 square kilometres. It and the Karaganda Region are Kazakhstan's only two regions which do not border other countries.

Some gold and coal mining occur in the area.

Geography [ edit ]

The steppes north of Nur-Sultan

Relief [ edit ]

The Akmola region occupies the region between the Ulytau Mountains in the south-west and the Kokshetau Heights in the north. The land slopes from east to west and the central part of the region is crossed by the valley of the Ishim river, which runs steeply to the north close to the western border of the region. The Akmola region can be divided into 3 parts: The North-Western plain, the South-Western plain with separate hills and the Eastern elevated region. The North-Western plain, which is adjacent to the Ishim valley where it turns to the North, is a flat plateau divided by dry ravines and gullies. To the Ishim valley, the plateau ends in a ledge. In the South-Western plain of the Akmola region, is an elevated plain extends dotted with numerous flat-topped hills and in the depressions between the hills, lay various shallow salt and fresh lakes. The east of the region, once mountainous, has been levelled by the processes of erosion which preserved a complex of hills, ridges and hummocks with soft outlines in the slopes. The relative heights of these hills are from 5-60m (16-197ft) and less often, up to 100m (328ft). The shape and size of these hills vary depending on the composition of the composing rocks. The highest hills with rounded tops are usually composed of granite, the hills with more gentle slopes are soft-textured peaks-porphyry and peaked hills are usually composed of quartzite. Closed basins between the hills, ranging in size from several tens of meters to several tens of kilometers in diameter, are often occupied by lakes. The extreme north-eastern part of the Akmola region lies within the West Siberian lowland.

Climate [ edit ]

The climate of the Akmola region is sharply continental and arid, with hot summers and cold winters and daily and annual temperature amplitudes which are very large. The region receives many days of sunlight and the amount of solar heat in the summer is almost as great as in the tropics. Cloud cover is insignificant, with a maximum amount of coverage in June and a minimum in February and annual precipitation decreases from north to south. Snow cover is maintained for an average of 150 days. Winds in the Akmola region are quite strong.

Hydrography [ edit ]

The Akmola region is low in water. Rivers are shallow, non-navigable and fed by meltwater and often underground sources. In summer, rivers will often dry up and their water becomes salty. The main rivers of Akmola region are the Ishim - a tributary of the Irtysh- and its tributaries: the Terisaqqan, the Zhabay and the Qalqutan. Many rivers end in drainless lakes. Dozens of lakes occupy the basins of the small-grasslands and the elevated plains of the Akmola region. The largest of them is the saline Lake Tengiz, roughly 40km (25 miles) wide near the border with the Karaganda region. Due to low-lying shores, the shape of the lake can change in strong winds.

The soil and vegetation cover of the Akmola region is that of steppes and semi-deserts. Depending on the terrain and underlying rocks, soil complexes and plant associations are extremely variegated and diverse. To the north of the Ishim there are grass steppes, while in the south are chernozems with a large number of salt flats on the depressions and skeletal soils on the hills. Vegetation is drought-resistant and accommodates grasshoppers, tipchak, and pine forests which are often found on hills. The western third of the Akmola region extends along the river valley of the Ishim, is occupied by grass steppes on dark chestnut soils. The blackness of the soil here is only 30-40%. To the East of the city of Nur-Sultan, the soil covers a significant role and in vegetation, sagebrush and tipchaks. In the southern part of the Akmola region, in the area of Lake Tengiz, an unclosed cover of sagebrush and tipchaks is spread on salt marshes.
