Despite of its long and extended coastline (5 700 km), the number of Argentine estuaries is relative small compared with other countries of comparable size. Mainly, the difference strives in the climate and the hydrological regime that characterize the country. Whereas the climate in the NE of Argentina is hot and humid with mean annual precipitation of 1950 mm and maximum of 2 437 mm; the NW is relatively dry and hot. In the center of the country the climate is mild with average precipitation on the order of 1000 mm, and in the South is dry and cold with annual precipitation of 300 mm or less.
