It is the second longest river in the world, and the largest in terms of the size of its watershed, the number of tributaries, and the volume of water discharged into the sea.  No bridge crosses the river along its entire length.  The Amazon and its tributaries flow through the countries of Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Brazil before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean 6,437 kilometers (4,000 miles) from the Amazon's headwaters high in the Andes Mountains of Peru.  This huge watershed includes the largest tropical rainforest in the world as well as areas of dry grassland, or savannah.  From Iquitos in Peru all the way across Brazil to the Atlantic, the Amazon is between six and ten kilometers wide.  And it goes even wider when it is flooded in the wet season. 
The rainforest's climate has heavy rainfalls and continuous high temperatures.  These forests are so huge that scientists believe they actually help control the world's climate in important ways. Destruction of the forests as settlers clear the land for farming and companies harvest trees for lumber is believed to be contributing to the problem of global warming.
