    WELCOME TO THE AMAZON RIVERStripes

    Quick Facts: The Amazon River in South America is the largest river by discharge volume of water in the world, and by some definitions it is the longest. The portion of the river's drainage basin in Brazil alone is larger than any other river's basin. The Amazon enters Brazil with only one-fifth of the flow it finally discharges into the Atlantic Ocean, yet already has a greater flow at this point than the discharge of any other river.
