La Plata Basin


The Rio de la Plata Basin is the name given to the 3,100,000 km hydrographical area that covers parts of Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.

The precipitation falling within this area is collected by several rivers to finally reach the Rio de la Plata, many of them through the Parana River and the Uruguay River, its two most important tributaries. These rivers include the Paraguay, Pilcomayo, Bermejo, Salado, Carcarana, Tercero, Cuarto, Iguazu, Salado del Sur, Gualeguay, Nogoya, Mocoreta, Gualeguaychu, Mirinay, Aguapey, Negro, Guaycuru, San Javier, Guayquiraro and Samborombon.
