its vast surface of 1,450,742 sq. mi. (3,757,407 km2), Argentina
offers every variety of climate and landscape: from tropical heat,
always rainy and full of colorful vegetation, to polar cold, with its soberly
white look thanks to snow and ice.
Located in the south in relation to the equator and the west in relation to
Greenwich, the Argentine Republic is also a bi-continental country,
since its territory occupies part of America and a portion of Antarctica.
Argentina presents very dissimilar regions. There are plains and mountain
ranges; woods and jungles; arid, swampy or clayish lands. Traversing
the country along its latitude (2,295 mi. or 3,694 km) is a long way. Hydrography:
A large number of rivers which are, for the most part, navigable, traverse
the country. Some of these are extremely important in hydroelectric terms. Climate:
One of the
most salient features of the Argentine territory is its variety of climates:
humid, dry, tropical heat or nival cold, through different kinds of mild
climates. Nothing remains outside the possibilities offered by Argentina
in climatic matters.
