Argentina and Paraguay - December 14th, 2010

While much of the land in northeastern Argentina and Paraguay appear green and fertile, populated and agricultural zones have a lighter brown color. Dark green areas are visible near the Paraná River, flowing more or less vertically down the right side of the image.

The tan area in the upper left quadrant is part of the Gran Chaco, a sparsely populated, hot and semi-arid lowland region of the Río de la Plata basin, divided among eastern Bolivia, Paraguay, northern Argentina and a portion of the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul, where it is connected with the Pantanal region. This land is sometimes called the Chaco Plain.
