The Brazil's flying rivers

AMAZON – Flying rivers are invisible courses of water, chains of vapor that pass above us, without anyone realizing it. These celestial rivers are formed by the waters that evaporate of the Amazon basin. The amount of water in vapor state that runs by these flying rivers is of the same order of magnitude or more than flow of the Amazon River (200 thousand cubic meters per second).
