Caption: Amazon River delta, Brazil, satellite image. The Amazon River drains much of northern South America, meeting the Atlantic Ocean towards the north of Brazil. In terms of volume of water it is the largest river in the world, depositing 180,000 cubic metres of water per second into the Atlantic in the rainy season. The delta, of which this image shows a small part has a tidal bore, which means that silt is carried off and does not deposit.
