Is the Amazon lacking in sodium?



  1. 0 Votes

    As the Amazon is a freshwater river, its natural salinity is quite low, so low in fact, that where the Amazon pours into the Atlantic, the salinity of the ocean water is lower for miles around.  This said, the Amazon could not really be said to be “lacking” in sodium, because it is the absence of salt that allows the unique freshwater species that the river supports to flourish.
