The Amazon River is located in northern South America. It is the second longest river in the world, behind the Nile. It runs across almost the entire width of South America from west to east. It has two seasons, spring and summer. Located in Brazil, there is virtually no winter or fall because this mighty river is so close to the Equator. The average yearly temperature is 26 degrees Celsius. The precipitation is evenly distributed throughout the year with about 16.93 centimeters per month and a total of 203.2 centimeters. One main difference between this river and the Missouri is that this river is located in a tropical climate zone. Where the Amazon is located only deals with two seasons instead of a usual four.
