Argentina is triangular in shape and stretches c.2,300 mi (3,700 km) from its broad northern region near the Tropic of Capricorn to Tierra del Fuego, an island shared with Chile, in the south. On the northeast, Argentina fronts on the Río de la Plata (an estuary and one of the major waterways of the Western Hemisphere), which separates Argentina from S Uruguay; its tributaries also act as international boundariesthe Uruguay River, with W Uruguay and S Brazil, and the Paraná, Paraguay, and Pilcomayo rivers, with Paraguay. The northwest boundary with Bolivia lies in the Gran Chaco and the Andes Mts. The western boundary with Chile follows the crestline of the Andes. The Atlantic Ocean borders Argentina on the east; there, off S Argentina, are the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), and the South Georgia, South Sandwich, and South Orkney islands, all dependencies of Great Britain that are claimed by Argentina. Argentina also claims a sector of Antarctica. The climate of Argentina varies from subtropical in the north to cold and windswept in the south, with temperate and dry areas found throughout much of the country. Precipitation, lowest along the E Andean slopes, increases markedly N and E across Argentina. The chief rivers of Argentina are the Paraná with its tributary, the Salado; the Colorado River; the Río Negro; and the Chubut. Argentina may be divided into six geographical regionsthe Paraná Plateau, the Gran Chaco, the Pampa (see under pampas), the Monte, Patagonia, and the Andes Mts. The Paraná Plateau in the extreme northeast is an extension of the highlands of S Brazil. It is the wettest part of Argentina and has a dense forest cover; tobacco, timber, and yerba maté are the chief products there. The spectacular Iguaçu Falls are in a national park located at the point where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay meet. * The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001 *

    Please submit sites which are entirely in Spanish to the appropriate subcategory of World/Español.

    You will notice that few sites are accepted at this level. We highly recommend that you browse through the sub-categories and look for a more specific location in which to place your site.

    Submitting to the wrong category will delay your site''s placement in the Open Directory Project.

    Notice

    Multiple submissions, repeat submissions, submission of mirror sites and similar techniques, with the intention of ''forcing'' a higher placement on the directory are most unwelcome and unnecessary.
    Such behavior will almost certainly delay, if not completely prevent, your submission being listed.(See the ODP terms of service).
    The ODP is a HUMAN edited directory with the motto "Humans do it better" - all submissions are therefore reviewed and edited fairly so that all sites submitted are listed equally.

    The Falkland-Malvinas Islands
    Here in this category you will find English language web sites and pages containing a wealth of information about this disputed group of islands. The first recorded landing on the Falkland Islands occurred in 1690 by an English captain, John Strong. He named the Islands after the then First Lord of the Admiralty, Viscount Falkland. After years of varied settlements, Britain resumed occupation and asserted her full rights in the Falklands with a naval garrison at Port Louis in 1833. The British administration has been continuous and unbroken, apart from the 1982 Conflict, right up to the present day and many of the Islanders today are descended from the earliest settlers. The position of the United Nations on the question of the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) is contained in General Assembly resolution 31/49 of 1 December 1976 and subsequent resolutions of the General Assembly. Whatever views you have, whether Falklands or Malvinas, when you browse through this category you will find that the islanders have embraced Internet technology for presenting themselves and their views to the world. Thank you for choosing the Open Directory Project as your information resource.
