Over 7 million cubic feet of water per second flow from the mighty Amazon River  into the Atlantic Ocean. This is more than the next seven largest rivers combined and enough to fill Lake Baikal, which is the world’s deepest lake, in less than four years. During the wet season the river at its widest point can be up to 30 miles wide.
