Niagara Falls. Satellite image of Niagara falls, a complex of waterfalls in the Niagara River. The Niagara River forms the American (bottom)-Canadian (top) border and allows Lake Erie to drain into Lake Ontario. The waterfall complex is made up of the American Falls (lower centre, 328 metres wide) and the Horseshoe Falls (upper centre, 675 metres wide). Both are around 50 metres high. Millions of litres of water flow over the falls every second, eroding the rock and powering hydroelectric power plants further downstream.
