Isthmus Name Quiz
Welcome to the isthmus name quiz. If you've ever been to an island, you know that an isthmus connects two pieces of land. But did you know that there are also isthmuses on the continental mainland? For example, the Poyasok Isthmus in Greece is a sixteen-mile stretch of marshland that separates the island from the mainland. The word "isthmus" is actually a Greek word and means "a bridge".
The word "isthmus" refers to a thin stretch of land connecting two larger areas. The term is derived from the Ancient Greek word isthmos, which means "neck". In fact, a narrow isthmus is a tombolo. One of the earliest recorded uses of the word was in 1550 when it first surfaced. It was used to describe a narrow neck of land between two seas.
For example, the Isthmus of Rivas is located between Coronado, California and the mainland. Another isthmus, Catalina Isthmus, connects western Santa Catalina Island to the eastern Santa Catalina Island. The Isthmus of Nahant is located between Nahant and little Nahant in New Hampshire. Other isthmuses include the Quetrihue Isthmus in northern Patagonia, and the Isthmus of East Falkland in Lafonia.
