Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Mercfc Wl THE UTHHIDOf HfKAlD 4f TFeafe spot develops on Horseshoe Falls CP A Cornell University geologist says the Horseshoe Falls on the Niagara River may accel erate its retreat up stream be cause a 110foot notch or weak spot has developed on the lip of the Shailer profes sor of geology in Cornells de partment of geological sci says old surveys show that when notches show up on the the falls start retreat ing at a faster In the 11 years between 1875 and Philbrick a weak spot caused the falls to move up the river for a dis tance of 200 an ex tremely fast geologi cally Philbrick said the present notch is 110 feet wide across a portion of the lip on the Goat Island side of Horseshoe Falls and has been developing since This notch could deepen and when it the falls will retreat up the river until the side pressure on the notch is equalled by the strength of the Its a n y b o d y s guess when the retreat will start or how far it will go but its already His remarks were released today by Pliilbricks research on the falls was reported in recent issues of the Geological Soci ety of America bulletin and in British science jour COMPARES SURVEYS He said comparison of sur veys from 1842 to 1966 shows the retreat rates are faster when the Horseshoe has a welldefined horizontal notch in the crest and slower when the crest is in the form of a horizontal The geologist said the rate of regression of the falls has puzzled geologists for some The Niagara River was an almost sedimentfree river of almost uniform flow which fell over a crest of constant All this suggested that the rate of regression due to natural erosion would have been constant during the years that the falls has been retreaitng up the river and carving the Upper Great Yet surveys made since 1842 showed the rate of re gression to be Philbrick sought the answer in the bottom profile along the Upper Great Surveys by the Canadian government showed that the river bottom contained a series of basins or plunge pools developed when the falls stood for a long pe riod of time in one spot with the arch By examining historical de scriptions and sketches of Horseshoe Falls and compar ing Niagara with waterfalls in New Philbrick con cluded that the rate of retreat of the fall crest depends on the shape of the A notch shape means a faster retreat and an arch shaped crest means a slower The publication Nature adds a social note to its report on the scientific It says work is not only of academic but is pail of a very practical program to find ways of halt ing the erosion of the various falls in the Niagara Which is a It would be nice to think that the Horseshoe Falls will go on re treating from the brash
