Buenos Aires
BUENOS AIRES (/ˌbweɪnəs ˈɛəriːz/ or /-ˈaɪrɪs/ ; Spanish pronunciation: ) is the capital and most populous city of Argentina . The city is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata , on the South American continent's southeastern coast. "Buenos aires" can be translated as "fair winds" or "good airs", but the first one was the meaning intended by the founders in the 16th century, by the use of the original name "Real de Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre". The Greater Buenos Aires conurbation, which also includes several Buenos Aires Province districts , constitutes the fourth-most populous metropolitan area in the Americas , with a population of around 17 million. The city of Buenos Aires is neither part of Buenos Aires Province nor the Province's capital; rather, it is an autonomous district

Metropolitan Area
A METROPOLITAN AREA, sometimes referred to as a METRO AREA or COMMUTER BELT, is a region consisting of a densely populated urban core and its less-populated surrounding territories, sharing industry, infrastructure, and housing. A metro area usually comprises multiple jurisdictions and municipalities : neighborhoods , townships , boroughs , cities , towns , exurbs , suburbs , counties , districts , states , and even nations like the eurodistricts . As social, economic and political institutions have changed, metropolitan areas have become key economic and political regions. Metropolitan areas include one or more urban areas , as well as satellite cities, towns and intervening rural areas that are socio-economically tied to the urban core, typically measured by commuting patterns

Urban Agglomeration
In the study of human settlements , an URBAN AGGLOMERATION is an extended city or town area comprising the BUILT-UP AREA of a central place (usually a municipality ) and any suburbs linked by continuous urban area . INSEE
INSEE
, the French Statistical Institute, uses the term _unité urbaine _, which means continuous urbanized area. However, because of different definitions of what constitutes an "agglomeration", as well as variations and limitations in statistical or geographical methodology, it can be problematic to compare different agglomerations around the world. It may not be clear, for instance, whether an area should be considered to be a satellite and part of an agglomeration, or a distinct entity in itself. The term _agglomeration_ is also linked to _conurbation _, which is a more specific term for large urban clusters where the built-up zones of influence of distinct cities or towns are connected by continuous built-up development (e.g

A CONURBATION is a region comprising a number of cities, large towns, and other urban areas that, through population growth and physical expansion, have merged to form one continuous urban or industrially developed area. In most cases, a conurbation is a polycentric urbanised area, in which transportation has developed to link areas to create a single urban labour market or travel to work area . The term "conurbation" was coined in 1915 by Patrick Geddes in his book _Cities In Evolution_

Urban Sprawl
URBAN SPRAWL or SUBURBAN SPRAWL describes the expansion of human populations away from central urban areas into low-density, monofunctional and usually car-dependent communities, in a process called suburbanization . In addition to describing a particular form of urbanization, the term also relates to the social and environmental consequences associated with this development. In Continental Europe the term "peri-urbanisation " is often used to denote similar dynamics and phenomena, although the term urban sprawl is currently being used by the European Environment Agency
European Environment Agency
. There is widespread disagreement about what constitutes sprawl and how to quantify it. For example, some commentators measure sprawl only with the average number of residential units per acre in a given area
