Niagara Falls

 (JPG) Niagara Falls (2,939,953 bytes) ( 3,762 x 3,558 )
The Niagara River (a Native American word for ‘«£at the neck‘«ō), linking Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, flows around Niagara Island, and then plummets over Horseshoe and American Falls, better known as Niagara Falls. The port city of Buffalo, New York is located at the northeast corner of Lake Erie where the river first leaves the lake. The image also includes the infamous Love Canal. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, as a result of chemical wastes having been dumped in the area of the Love Canal from 1947 to 1952, the area was evacuated. In 1990, after a 12-year cleanup effort, the federal government declared parts of the area habitable and reopened those areas. This image was acquired on September 8, 2001 and covers an area of 56.4 x 53.4 km. The image is centered at 43.1 degrees north latitude, 79 degrees west longitude.
