Amazon Standard Time is a hypothetical time zone that is sometimes mentioned in discussions about the time zones in South America. Amazon Standard Time is proposed as a possible time zone for the Amazon rainforest region in South America, which covers parts of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.
Amazon Standard Time would be based on the longitude of the Amazon rainforest region, which is located approximately between 60° west longitude and 70° west longitude. This would make Amazon Standard Time approximately five hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
Amazon Standard Time has not been formally established as a time zone, and it is not recognized by any official timekeeping authority. The time zones that are currently used in South America are based on the longitude of the capital cities of each country rather than the longitude of the Amazon rainforest region.
There are no countries that currently use Amazon Standard Time. However, if Amazon Standard Time were to be established as a time zone, it would likely be used by the countries that are located within the Amazon rainforest region, such as Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.
