What to do at the Niagara Falls ???

Niagara Sky Wheel:

Niagara Sky Wheel Is the newest way to see the Niagara Falls. The Niagara sky wheel is a world class ride it is fully enclosed gondolas, each gondolas have got heating and air conditioning for year-round comfort and the enjoyment of seeing Niagara Falls.

Niagara Helicopters:

Niagara Helicopters For over 48 years, Niagara Helicopter has been exiting passenger from every in the world with the highest, most scenic and most exiting sightseeing view in the Niagara Region.

Daredevils of Niagara Falls

Who are they ??:

Who are they ?? Annie Taylor Bobby leach Charles G. Stephans George L. Statakis Nathan Boya Karel Soucek Kirk Jones

What do they do ???:

What do they do ??? The daredevils do things on the waterfall and it is dangerous to do the things they do because one of the daredevils Annie Taylor – Who was the first person to conquer the falls in a barrel. She climbed into a airtight wooden barrel, the air pressure was compressed to 30 p.s.i with a bike pump. She was bruised and battered annie made it out of the Niagara Falls and she got out of the wooden barrel at the bottom of it and she expected fame and fortune but instead she died of poverty.

How do they travel down the Niagara Falls?? :

How do they travel down the Niagara Falls?? They travelled down the Niagara Falls in whatever they wanted to travel in, some travelled in a wooden barrel and one person travelled in a jet ski they choosed what they wanted to travel in. I think that the safest way to travel down the Niagara Falls is a wooden barrel because if you look most off the ones that travelled in a wooden barrel they mostly survived it.

What has happened to them ?? :

What has happened to them ?? Annie died in poverty Bobby leach broke both kneecaps and his jaw Charles G. Stephans right arm was the only thing left in the wooden barrel George L. Statakis suffocated to death after his barrel got stuck behind the Niagara Falls for more then 14 hours Karel Soucek survived the plunge of the Niagara Falls. Some of the people that plunged off the Niagara Falls survived the plunge but some people didn’t I guess it was over luck and weather they just had too much of a tight barrel with not enough air inside.

These are pictures to show the Daredevils !!!!

How are waterfalls formed ????:

How are waterfalls formed ????

PowerPoint Presentation:

Waterfalls are formed when a layer of harder rock overlays a layer of softer rock.

PowerPoint Presentation:

As the river passes over the softer rock, it is able to erode it at a faster rate, forming a STEP in the river bed.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The force of hydraulic action does tow things : Further erosion make the plunge pool and notch bigger over time.

PowerPoint Presentation:

As the notch grows, eventually there isn’t enough support under the harder rock and so it collapses into the plunge pool .

PowerPoint Presentation:

This adds rocks and boulders to the plunge pool, and so the process of corrosion works with hydraulic action to further erode the plunge pool and notch .

PowerPoint Presentation:

The processes of erosion continue, further eroding out the plunge pool. Eventually the harder rock above will collapse again, meaning that the waterfall will retreat upstream over time.

PowerPoint Presentation:

As it retreats, it leaves behind a steep sided gorge

Does the Niagara Falls freeze up !!:

Does the Niagara Falls freeze up !! The Niagara Falls does and it doesn't freeze up the water never stops flowing but the falling water and the mist does freeze which creates a ice along the banks of the falls. When the falls do freeze up in the winter time the ice is about fifty feet thick if freezing cold is a long period of time then the ice will cross the full river and form a ice bridge and since 1912 visitors were allowed to walk on the ice bridge and view it from the bottom. Mini icebergs can form on the falls when it is frozen up.

The stopping of flowing water on the American falls :

The stopping of flowing water on the American falls The flow of American falls was complete stopped for several month in 1969. the idea of stopping the falls was to the removing of large amount of loose rocks from the base of the falls.

American Falls & Bridal Veil Falls:

American Falls & Bridal Veil Falls Length of brink: 1060 feet Height: 176 feet (due to rocks at the base actual fall is 70 feet) Volume of water: 150,000 U.S. Gallons per second Actual amount varies; there are two hydroelectric plants which draw water into their reservoirs prior to the fall. Their intake greatly affects the volume of water flowing over the falls.

Canadian "Horseshoe" Falls :

Canadian "Horseshoe" Falls Length of brink:2600 feet Height: 167 feet Volume of water: 600.000 u.s . gall once per second

History of the Falls :

History of the Falls The Niagara River, as is the entire Great Lakes Basin of which the river is an integral part, is a legacy of the last Ice Age. 18,000 years ago southern Ontario was covered by ice sheets 2-3 kilometres thick. As they advanced southward the ice sheets gouged out the basins of the Great Lakes. Then as they melted northward for the last time they released.
