Abstract

The Madeira River is the main Southern tributary of the Amazon, and the second Andean tributary of the drainage basin. The use of Bolivian data from the PHICAB, and Brazilian data from the DNAEE, allowed the authors to estimate the dissolved and sediment yields evolution, from the Andes to the Amazon River. Dissolved yield increased progressively from upstream to downstream, as did the discharge.
