English: NASA astronaut photograph of the Río de la Plata estuary looking west-east, the picture does not show a north and south view. Actually the right is the south and the bottom of the picture is the west. Note Greater Buenos Aires on the right side of the picture, and Montevideo on the left side (near the mouth of the Santa Lucía. To the east of Greater Buenos Aires, a smaller conurbation is visible, including La Plata (a few kilometers inland) and the Berisso-Ensenada area (near the river). Water on the river is brown because of sediments carried from the Paraná and Uruguay rivers. The color turns blue when approaching the South Atlantic Ocean. The exact location of the color change (which also implies a change from clear to salt water) depends on winds and currents.
Español: Foto del Río de la Plata tomada desde satélite, la cámara apunta hacia el sudeste. Se aprecia la desembocadura del río Río Uruguay y del Río Paraná. En la margen derecha destaca Buenos Aires y también la ciudad de La Plata; en la izquierda, se aprecia Montevideo, próximo a la desembocadura del Río Santa Lucía. En esta zona se observa cambio de color en el agua, la cual se torna más salada según se aproxima al Océano Atlántico.
Deutsch: Satellitenaufnahme des Rio de la Plata, Blickrichtung von Westen nach Osten. Der Rio de la Plata wird gebildet vom Zusammenfluss des de:Rio Paraná und des de:Rio Uruguay. Aufgrund der von den beiden Strömen transportierten Sedimente ist das Wasser des Rio de la Plata braungefärbt. Der Südatlantische Ozean ist blau. Die genaue Lage der Farbgrenze und damit die Stelle, an der sich Süß- und Salzwasser mischen, hängt von Wind und Strömungen ab. Auf dem Bild erkennt man recht gut die Ausmaße des Großraums de:Gran Buenos Aires (unterer Bildrand). Etwas flussabwärts (also östlich) befindet sich einige km im Landesinneren La Plata, die Hauptstadt der Provinz Buenos Aires, sowie davor am Ufer das Gebiet Berisso-Ensenada. Am oberen linken Bildrand liegt in der Nähe der Mündung des Santa Lucia die uruguayische Hauptstadt de:Montevideo.
