The terrestrial names is the world famous Niagara Falls. The Niagara River is diverted by Goat and Luna Islands to create 3 distinct waterfalls, the grandest being the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. Approximately 5.9 million cu ft of water goes over the crest of the falls every minute. This has led to much erosion over the years as the falls have retreated almost 7 years in the past 10,000 years. More information available at Niagara Falls
