Image Caption:
STS49-84-002: Western Amazonian Rivers Rivers in western Amazo-
nia (E Peru) show differences in meander intensity and various
floodplain features such as rias fluviales, lakes dammed by
levees of larger rivers. Such natural dams rapidly develop dif-
ferent ecologies from the through-flowing rivers as can be seen
by the fact they are clear and the rivers are muddied with
flood-sediment.
