Highest mountain peaks of North America


Highest mountain peaks of North America

The following sortable table lists the 120 mountain peaks on the continent of North America with at least convert|4000|m|ft|0|sp=us of topographic elevation and at least convert|500|m|ft|0|sp=us of topographic prominence. For this article, North America is defined as the continental landmass of the Americas extending north from the Isthmus of Panamá. Topographic elevation is the vertical distance above the reference geoid, a precise mathematical model of the Earth's sea level as an equipotential gravitational surface. Topographic prominence is the elevation difference between the summit and the highest or key col to a higher summit. Topographic isolation is defined as the minimum great circle distance to a point of higher elevation. A total of 99 of these highest peaks are located in the United States,Mauna Kea (4205 m) and Mauna Loa (4169 m) are located in the United States, but are not on the continent of North America.
