Rio Paranà Argentina
Rio Paranà Argentina
The Paraná River (Spanish: Río Paraná, Portuguese: Rio Paraná) is a river in south central South America, running through Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina for some 2,570 kilometers (1,600 miles). This length increases to 3,998 km (2,484 miles) if the distance is counted from the headwaters of the Paranaiba River in Brazil. It is considered second in size only to the Amazon River among South American rivers. The name Paraná is an abbreviation of the phrase "para rehe onáva", which comes from the Tupi language and means "like the sea" (that is, "as big as the sea").

This VEGETATION image of 15/11/2001 shows the Great Salt Lake in Utah. This lake undergoes a drastic change in color at the railway causeway (21-mile-long - runs east-west across the middle of the lake), caused by a difference in salinity.The rocky berm provides a shortcut for trains traversing the nation, but also acts like a dam that divides the lake into two distinct sections. Water to the north of the causeway has become so salty that brine shrimp no longer can survive there, while salinity levels on the south side have dipped below the level favored by tiny crustaceans.
