When the last ice age ended 12'000 years ago, North America's glaciers created a tremendous amount a melted water which caused Lake Erie to flood. The newly formed Niagara river flows over the hard dolomite rock of the Niagara Escarpment rock formation towards the north and connects Lake Erie with Lake Ontario. On the border between the USA and Canada, the water masses collide together, separated by the Goat Island, almost 60 meters deep. On the US American side, the waterfall has a width of app.360 meters; the so-called horseshoe on the Canadian side has a length of app. 790 meters. As a special geological phenomenon, the waterfall nears Lake Erie by almost two meters every year due to the erosion process. In the course of thousands of years, it has already laid back eleven kilometers. The Niagara Falls are now famous worldwide and attract more then 18 million visitors to the region every year.
