Confluence of the Negro and Amazon rivers near Manaus

Confluence of the Negro and Amazon rivers near Manaus, Brazil, showing the dark, humus-laden waters of the Negro in the foreground, and the silt-laden waters of the Amazon in the background.
The Rio Negro drains low-relief rain forests in the Northern Hemisphere (northern Brazil and Colombia), while the primary source of Amazon river water is the central and eastern Andes highlands in the Southern Hemisphere (Peru and Bolivia).
