Quang Ngai is a province in the Central Coast
with the common characteristics of the sea.
Mountainous areas account for about
three-fourths of the province's natural area, while the narrow plains account
for one-fourth of the natural area.
Like other central provinces, Quang Ngai is
generally in the form of isometric and is divided into four distinct areas:
mountainous, midland, lowland and coastal sandy areas.
1. MOUNTAIN AREAS
It borders Truong Son east, mainly in the
mountainous districts of Tra Bong, Tay Tra, Son Ha, Son Tay, Minh Long, Ba To,
or 6 mountainous districts in the province.
Land is built in place, often eroded from
high to low, there are many hills, rocks and gravel. The land in this area is
often gray, dirtied, black (area of 1.770ha, accounting for 0.3% of the
province's land area), used for food crops and short-term industrial plants.
The distribution area is mainly in the
western margin, northwest, southwest of Binh Son, Son Tinh, Tu Nghia, Nghia
Hanh, Mo Duc and Duc Pho districts. The undulating topography is generally
inclined to the east.
Quang Ngai Delta is small but quite diverse
in morphology. The area is about 150,678 ha, of which only 13,672 ha is
regularly filled with sediment annually by four main river systems: Tra Bong
River, Tra Khuc River, Ve River and Tra Cau River.
The land here is suitable for food crops,
short-term industrial crops, especially sugarcane. The delta is the largest
underground water reservoir in the province serving the livelihoods and
production needs of the majority of Quang Ngai residents.
4. COASTAL SANDY AREA
Covering an area of about 2,446.8 hectares,
this area is suitable for sweet potato, cassava, coconut and casuarina forest
The topography of the coastal sandy areas of
Quang Ngai province has the same characteristics as other areas in the central
In addition, the coastal sandy areas of Quang
Ngai are characterized by low-profile terrain, which are limestone river mouth
marshes and coastal lagoons. The terrain is flat and wide (Duc Pho, Mo Duc, Bac
Binh Son) are the most typical sandbanks.
This is an area of great potential for
aquaculture, especially shrimp farming in the sand for high economic benefits
and is adjacent to the coastline, the estuary is convenient for fishing and
