Grand Banks

The Grand Banks can be found around Newfoundland. It consists of many banks, a few being Grand, Great, and St. Pierre. The banks are know internationally for fishing. Some types of fish that can be caught there are cod, redfish, flatfish, and herring. Other fisheries, include shrimp, and lobsters. In the 20th century, the banks mainly dried and salted fish, for transportation in England. Around the 1970's, oil drilling became popular on the banks. The banks extend for 350 miles, along the coast. The depths of the water toward the south-east, is around 180 ft, but many places reach 600 ft. Ocassionally ice burgs, and and severe snow storms, add hazards to the area. 

Mount logan is the countries highest point, and it's the 2nd highest peak in North America. Mount Logan was named after William Edmon Logan, a Canadian geologist. Due to tectonic uplifting, Mount Logan is still rising in size. Tempuratures are extremely cold, the average around -49 F. It's located in Southwestern Yukon.

Mount Logan

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls was formed when glaciers receded at the end of the Wisconsin glaciation. The United States and Canada shared the Falls. The height was 167' ( 51 meters.) There are three drops and two bridges which were the Rainbow Bridge and the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge. The Falls are very wide more than six million cubic feet and every minute water falls over the crest line in a high flow. 

Husdon Bay

Is around 1,230,000 square kilometers. The southern part of Hudson Bay is called, James Bay.

The bay is relatively shallow. Named after Henry Hudson, who explored it on August 2, 161.

Lake Superior

Lake Superior is the biggest of the Great Lakes, and the almost the biggest Lake in the world. Over 300 streams and rivers flow into Lake Superior. The lake reaches about 350 miles in lenth and 160 miles in width.
