Sediments in Rio de la Plata Estuary Between Buenos Aires and Montevideo – October 26th, 201035.4S 56.5W
As Spring begins in the southern hemisphere, the terrain near the Argentine and Uruguayan capitals of Buenos Aires and Montevideo, respectively, takes on a bright green color.
The two cities, on the other hand, appear as grey areas near the shores of Rio de la Plata estuary. The cities are located on opposite sides, with Buenos Aires to the west and Montevideo to the east.
Tan sediments from the Uruguay and Paraná Rivers flow into the Rio de la Plata, making it appear brown in color. As the estuary widens and the sediments move out into the Atlantic Ocean, they become more diffuse and lighter tan in color.
