Niagara Falls is comprised of three parts namely American Falls, Canadian Horseshoe Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. The height of American part is 176 foot, and it has a brink length of 1,075 foot ,and Canadian part is slightly shorter than American falls with the height of 167 foot and greater brink length of 2,600 foot. So, naturally most part of the water of Niagara Falls goes over Canadian Horse Falls due to the gravitational force of earth, since it is about 10 ft shorter than American part . It is estimated that about 90% of total water flows over the Canadian part. The third one called Bridal Veil Falls is relatively smaller than other two parts of falls.

How does Nature produce this much of water flow in Niagara Falls?

This is nothing but the flow of huge part of water from one of the Great Lakes of America called Erie to the other Great Lake called Ontario. The prime source of the Niagara Falls is Lake Eire and in winter seasons total surface area of the lake (about 26,000 will be covered by snow bed that may reach a height of a few meters  The snow bed will naturally start to melt on summer days and become the source of Niagara Falls. The other indirect source of Niagara Falls is Detroit river flowing into the lake Eire.

Erosion By Niagara Falls

In fact it's not a good news to read that Niagara Falls loses a foot from its total height each year. The nature lovers are fearing that Niagara Falls would become a fast moving water stream after many decades. The dramatic change in height is due to the weak composition of bed rock which is made up of soft shale and lime stone.
