Abstract

The fluvial belt of the Amazon River is a complex of Quaternary sedimentary units of different ages and formation conditions. Present position of the channel and the morphology and size of the alluvial plain are related to neo-tectonic lineaments. The river may be considered anastomosed, albeit with few islands and anabranches. The main Holocene units are the impeded floodplain and the channel-dominated floodplain. This very large river system had a complex and delayed response to variations in the hydrological conditions induced by changes in the regional climate during the Late Holocene
