Niagara Falls

It is the collective name for the three waterfalls on the Niagara River in the Great Lakes region of North America. The average flow is 2,407 cubic meters per second. It is also known as the world’s three largest transnational waterfalls along with Iguazu Falls and Victoria Falls. Niagara Falls is famous for its beautiful scenery, huge hydroelectric power capacity and difficult ecological and environmental protection projects.

Form

It is believed that the waterfall was formed during the ice age about 10,000 years ago, and the Great Lakes of North America were formed at the same time. At that time, due to the erosion of the terrain, a large hole was formed in the riverbed, and a waterfall was formed. Some scientists believe that the waterfall was originally a valley, but it was formed by a river flowing through it.

Feature

The Niagara River connects Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, separating New York State in the United States and Ontario, Canada. When it flows through Goat Island, which is about 350 meters wide, it falls into the cliff and splits into two, forming the Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls. Bridalville Falls is separated from the other waterfalls by Luna Island.

Horseshoe Falls is a large cascade, also known as Canadian Falls, that straddles the United States and Canada and accounts for about 90% of the water in the Niagara River. The waterfall is semi-ring-shaped, 670 meters wide and 57 meters dropped.

The American Falls is an intermediate waterfall located in the eastern United States. It accounts for about 10% of the water volume of the Niagara River. The river water is blue. The waterfall is 260 meters wide and has a drop of 21-34 meters.

Bridal Veil Falls, also known as Bridal Veil Falls, is a small waterfall located in the United States. The waterfall is 15 meters wide and has a drop of 24-31 meters.
