Rio Grande
St Lawrence

Rio Grande is the fourth or fifth longest river system in North America, but it flows through arid and desert regions. The average dis­charge is just 82 m³/s (St Lawrence: 10100, Yukon: 6200, Col­orado: 1200). It is also very vari­able, oc­ca­sion­al­ly rising to over 10000 m³/s or dropping to 1 m³/s. During portions of 2001 and 2002 the mouth of the Rio Grande was blocked by a sandbar.
