There seems to be a land mass between Buenos Aires, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. Normally there is Rio de la Plata bay.

This is the sediment/organic matter that flows out into the sea with major rivers. The same can be seen in many large river mouths around the world and is the cause of deltas.

I was there in January, and all I can say is the river actually *is* that "dirty" (read: colour), lol :spin:
