South America's hydrosphere. Close-up of a spherical projection of South America (Earth's limb at top), showing its rivers, seas and ice. Together, these sources of water make up the Earth's hydrosphere. The major features of the hydrosphere in South America are the Amazon River (upper centre) and the Uruguay River and Parana River (lower centre) that merge to form the River Plate estuary. At lower left are the ice-capped peaks (white) and high-altitude lakes (blue) of the Andes mountain range.
