OBOA COVER FACT
Cover of Issue 37 - 1998, Niagara Falls Ontario. This cover was to promote the 42nd AMTS and was themed Navigating the Future, was the third time the OBOA conference was held in the Niagara Region and the first time OBOA displayed a professional exhibitor booth. The Falls were formed when glaciers receded at the end of the Wisconsin glaciation (the last ice age), and water from the newly formed Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean. The Horseshoe Falls drop about 188 feet, the American Falls varies between 70 and 100 feet. The verdant green colour of the water flowing over the Niagara Falls is a byproduct of the estimated 60 tonnes/minute of dissolved salts and "rock flour".
