Brazil – March 26th, 2013

The Amazon River and several of its tributaries can be seen flowing across this image, amidst the green vegetation of the Amazon Rainforest in the Brazilian state of Amazonas. The rivers appear silver in color due to sun glint. Despite the lush green of the vegetation visible here, the Amazon Biome is threatened by climate change and deforestation, resulting in the substitution of forests with savanna-like and semiarid vegetation in many areas.
