Study Finds Amplified Seasonality in the Amazon Plume Region, Favoring More Extreme Marine and Terrestrial Conditions 15 September 2020

Study Finds Amplified Seasonality in the Amazon Plume Region, Favoring More Extreme Marine and Terrestrial Conditions

Variations in the amount of precipitation that feeds the Amazon River, ranked as the world’s largest river in terms of annual discharge, can profoundly impact the marine ecosystem in the region where the fresh river water enters the salty ocean (Amazon plume region) and influence the hydroclimate over the tropical Atlantic.
