Joad in Niagara Falls

Niagara juga

9.6/10

Niagara juga (Niagara Falls) on juga (õigemini jugade ja kärestike süsteem) Põhja-Ameerikas Niagara jõel. Niagara juga on üks maailma veerohkem ja tuntum juga. Et Niagara jõgi on piirijõgi, siis asub osa joast Kanada ja osa USA territooriumil.

Nimetuse "Niagara juga" alla mahub kolm juga, mida eraldavad saared. Suurem neist on Kanada-poolne Hoburaua juga ehk Hobuseraua juga (Horseshoe Falls), mida nimetatakse ka Kanada joaks. Kitsesaar (Goat Island) eraldab teda USA-poolsest Ameerika joast. Luna saar eraldab Ameerika joast omakorda pisikese Pruudiloori joa (Bridal Veil Falls).

Kõik kolm juga on enam-vähem võrdse kõrgusega (53-57 m), kokku voolab üle jugade ligi 3000 m3 vett sekundis. Kõige suurem on kaarekujuline Hoburaua juga (laius 700 m), mille kaudu langeb umbes 90% jõe veest; ülejäänud veest langeb valdav enamus Ameerika joa (laius 300 m) kaudu. Tänu suurele vooluhulgale ei ole Hoburaua joa all rusu ning juga langeb otse vette. Ameerika ning Pruudiloori joa vool ei ole piisavalt tugev varisenud kivide eemaldamiseks ning nii on mõlema joa alla kuhjunud rusu. Vabalt langeb vesi umbes pool joa kogukõrgusest.

Geoloogiline ehitus ja ajalugu

Joa astang on osa Niagara astangust (Niagara Escarpment), klindinõlvast, mis ulatub Ontario järvest idas Michigani järve läänekaldale.

Astangu pealmise kõvema kihi moodustavad Kesk-Siluri Lockporti dolomiidid, mille all asuvad pehmemad Alam-Siluri kiltkivid.

Jääaja (Wisconsini jäätumise) lõppedes 10 000 aastat tagasi asus juga Niagara astangu joonel Ontario järve lõunakalda lähedal. Järgnevate aastatuhandete jooksul on vesi astangut 11 km lõuna poole uuristanud keskmise kiirusega 1–2 m aastas. Kitsesaareni, kus eraldusid Kanada ja Ameerika haru, jõudis juga umbes 700 aastat tagasi. Palju suurema vooluhulga tõttu on Kanada-poolne juga taganenud palju kiiremini; väikese vooluga Ameerika juga ei suuda varisenud rusu eemaldada ning muutub arvatavasti aja jooksul koseks. Praeguseks on joa liikumise kiirus oluliselt vähenenud, sest üle poole veest juhitakse hüdroelektrijaamadesse.

On arvatud, et mõnekümne tuhande aasta pärast jõuab juga Erie järveni, mille veetase võib selle tulemusel oluliselt langeda.

There are endless picture-perfect photo opportunities along the walkway at Niagara Falls. For the best shot, get here at night to take in the light show and fireworks!

Feel free to turn on your cell phones as signal strength from U.S. cell towers will suffice, preventing roaming. U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!

The view of both falls is better from the Canadian side. You get a good view of just rapids on the American side.

Don't miss the Aquarium of Niagara, where you can watch penguin feedings, see sea lions up close and even feed seals yourself.

The rainbow lights are a little tacky. White would be just fine.
