Brazil - December 10th, 2010

This APM image shows the winding path of the Tarauacá River as it crosses the Brazilian state of Amazonas, just north of the border with Acre. The Tarauacá is a tributary of the Juruá River, which is turn is a tributary of the Amazon.

Here, it flows north towards its confluence with the Enbirá River (also known as Envira), near the city of Envira. In the full image, a small section of the Enbirá can be observed in the lower right corner.
