Rio Limay, Rio Neuquén and Rio Negro
The 100 m false-colour image of 23 October 2016 shows us a nice view over the rivers: Río Limay, Rio Neuquén and Rio Negro (center to the right). The Neuquén River(upper left to centeer) is the second most important river of the province of Neuquén in the Argentine Patagonia, after the Limay River (lower left to center). It is born at the eastern end of the Nahuel Huapi Lake and flows in a meandering path for about 380 kilometres, collecting the waters of several tributaries, such as the Traful River, the Pichileufú and the Collón Curá. It then meets the Neuquén River and together they become the Río Negro. At this confluence lies the city of Neuquén. The river serves as natural limit between the provinces of Río Negro and Neuquén. Its deep waters are clear, and carry a large flow, 700 cubic metres per second on average.
