Confluence of Negro and Solimões Rivers by Manaus, Brazil3.1S 60W
The Negro River (dark, upper left) and Solimões River (tan) cross the upper half of this image. The two rivers meet near Manáus, the capital of the state of Amazonas in Brazil.
Their confluence is quite particular, as the rivers’ different colored waters run side by side without mixing for about 6km due to differences in temperature, speed and water density.
The lower half of the image is partially veiled by smoke blowing northward from many fires in Bolivia and Brazil that have been burning over the last month.
