Geocache Description:


Castellano

El pantano del Ebro está construido en el rio Ebro en el norte de España. Se encuentra a caballo entre la comarca burgalesa de Las Merindades y la comarca cántabra de Campoo-Los Valles. Es el tercer embalse de mayor capacidad de la cuenca hidrográfica del Ebro, por detrás de los embalses de Mequinenza y Canelles.

El 70% de la totalidad del embalse se encuentra dentro de Cantabria, mientras el otro 30% se encuentra en Burgos. Se nutre de aguas cántabras en un altísimo porcentaje, por los ríos Ebro, Híjar e Izarilla, y el deshielo de las cumbres de Tresmares, en su lado este, y de toda la Sierra de Isar. Mientras que de la parte burgalesa el río Virga vierte su corriente en el pantano.
