The animation shows the size of river drainage basins, or watersheds, scaled to the mass of sediment transported by the rivers to the coastal oceans. The color code (upper right corner) corresponds to million tons (Mt) of sediment per week. The time bar on the bottom shows the progression throughout the year. The sun symbol on the map shows the movement of the high-point of the sun throughout the seasons as an alternative time marker.
