Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital

The State Capital of Argentina is Buenos Aires.

The population of Argentina is 43,847,430 since of 2016.

The rainforests in argentina include one main rainforest, the Valdivian temperate rainforest. 

The Valdivian temperate rainforest is the only one inside Argentina and all of South America. It has lots of other landforms like some low mountains and it has a few waterfalls.

Some landforms in Argentina include some mountain valleys, and the humid and rainy rainforests argentina has. It also has some flat swamp wetland areas. 

Argentina's Landforms

The Ibera Wetlands, the main wetland of Argentina.

Mount Aconcagua, one of the tallest mountains outside Asia. It takes about 21 days to climb.

Aconcagua is the dominate mountain of argentina being the highest. It's name means Stone Sentinel. It also has a park called the Aconcagua Provincial Park. It's high reaches about 22,841 feet, the highest peak in Argentina.

The Ibera Wetlands are one of the biggest wetlands in Argentina and is full of other landforms like swamps marshes and other wetlands.

(Just so you know, this isn't very accurate because of the widespread climate. If you look at the link it might explain more) Even though Argentina doesn't have a main or 2 main climates, Really there are only 3 main ones, the Temperate, Sub Polar, and Arid sections. Or Sub Tropical, Humid, and Arid.  For the Sub-Tropical the temperature for Rivadavia from November to February, ranges a good 93-97 degrees F at the highest. the average precipitation is 500-1000 mm or 20-40 in per year. For the Humid, which is in the area of Buenos Aires, the capital, In July the temp. would be about 52 F and a high around 59 F. The precipitation averages a little more than Subtropical, around 500-1200 mm per year. Finally, the Arid climate. the Arid climate is around mount Aconcagua, the temperature averages around 46.5 degrees F. in June and July, and to 77 degrees F in December and January, the temp. Is so high because of the arid desert temp. During the day is can exceed up to 86 degrees F. Although, only about 225 mm of rainfall.

Banco de la Provincia

Unique structures of argentina

Palacio de Aguas Argentinas was once the city's water supplier. It is also called the Water Palace. Even though it looks nice, unique and ornate, behind all the walls are tubes, pipes, tanks, and pumps, once used in it. Also it is now used as Buenos Aires' new water department. 

Banco de la Provincia, which is a bank, and is one of the oldest, started in 1822. Even though it is a bank spread across latin america, this one is headquarters for nearly 300 Argentine government branches and 20 further across South America and Europe.

Casa Rosada, or the "Pink House" is a museum. Inside are some exhibits of Argentine leaders. Some other things found are books, swords, furniture, and carriages used by some former Presidents, flatware, dishes, and also dolls.

Argentina is a big country and has some pretty interesting man-made structures. Here are some of the most interesting I found.

Argentina has lots of natural resources. Other than water, Argentina has mostly mining-related natural resources. One of them is lead, which Argentina will make into products and/or sell it. They also mine a lot of Zinc, a mineral found underground and in the human body. It helps people's immune (defense) system to fight off bacteria, it also helps wounds heal and is important for your sense of taste and smell. The last one is Uranium, one of the most radioactive substances on earth known to man. It generates heat in nuclear power reactors, produces the fissile material for nuclear weapons, like nukes. Also depleted uranium is used in kinetic energy penetrators and is also used for armor plating.

Lead, a very easy found and refined mineral.

Argentine's Natural resources

Uranium, the most radioactive element known.

Zinc, a rare yet important mineral in the body.

Soy oil, another processed food, which is made of the seeds of a soybean.

Auto parts, a product most people eventually buy.

Steel pipes, a commonly made product of steel

Argentina's Industry

The main industry of Argentina, would be they industrialize in steel. They would mainly use it for selling, building, or for making some of the auto parts, which comes into the next thing. The next thing they industrialize in would be auto parts, which they make for cars, trucks, utility vehicles, buses, trailers, chassis, farming and road machinery. Most people in Argentina end up buying some, because of the fact that it is easily found. The last one, is a big one, which is food processing. Since they are the biggest soy producer, they would definitely have to process the soybeans, which they would make into soy meal and soy oil.

Soy meal, a processed food mainly eaten by herd animals, such as cows.

Argentina's agriculture is mostly made of Glycine max, or in North America, soybeans, are a bean native to East Asia. It is usually grown because of it's edibleness and other uses. 

Another plant grown in argentina, which is very common, is wheat. Wheat is a grass highly cultivated for its seed, is one of the most common plants, usually found in a lot of the food humans eat. Wheat is also a world-wide staple food, a food that is eaten routinely.

Wheat, a widely grown and used product.

Glycine max, or soybeans

Argentina's Agriculture

Another one would be Maize, or corn, is also grown in Argentina. It originated about 10,000 years ago from mexico. It is used in things like animal feed, a replacement for wheat, to make corn bread, and is found mostly in tortillas, atole, and other foods from Mexico.

Other than Maize, or corn, Wheat, and Glycine max, or Soybeans, a small amount of the agriculture is made of other plants for animal feed, flour, and vegetable oils, which aren't really agriculture, it is processed agriculture.

Maize, or Corn.

Vegetable oil, Flour, and Animal feed, some examples of processed agriculture.

Argentina's citizens speak spanish, and some of the cultural foods they eat is one called Carbonada, a stew with meat, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and chunks corn on the cob. Some other include Carbonada Criolla, which has Stew with meat, vegetables, and fruit. Some historic holidays include Independence Day, National Flag Day, and an extended family Christmas Eve, around 9 pm for dinner, music, and usually dancing.
