About the second river
The second longest river in the world, the Amazon River, has a rich history dating back to the 15th century when Europeans first discovered it. The river stretches approximately 6,400 km from the Andes Mountains in Peru to the Atlantic Ocean. Its hydrology is affected by seasonal rainfall and snowmelt from the Andes Mountains, resulting in high water levels during the rainy season and low water levels during the dry season. The river is home to several large reservoirs, such as the Balbina Dam, which generates hydroelectric power, and the Tucuruí Dam, which provides irrigation and flood control. Additionally, the river supports a diverse array of wildlife and is a popular location for recreational activities such as fishing and river cruises. Agriculturally, the Amazon River basin is home to numerous crops including cocoa, coffee, and rubber.
