Presentation Description

Lake of Shining Waters or Lake Ontario is the smallest of the Great Lakes by area. However, it still ranks as the world’s 13th-largest lake and it has a greater volume than Lake Erie due to a much greater average depth. Nestled between New York State and Ontario, it serves as the last link in the Great Lakes chain. Saint Lawrence River is its outlet that eventually reaches the Atlantic Ocean.
