Lakes And Lagoons


All the Argentine lakes are in the Patagonia, both in the cordilleran and in the extra-cordilleran areas. Some of the cordilleran lakes are shared with Chile, whereas the rest are exclusively under Argentine sovereignty.
The lagoons are scattered along the whole Argentine territory. There are some of marine origin, which tend to disappear and become salt-pits and others are water collections from rainfall or thawing.
