Geographically organized, this gallery features both current and 
historical coastal images and links to related water level updates.

The Lake Erie- Niagara River Ice Boom
http://www.iceboom.nypa.gov/
In New York, keeping the electricity flowing means keeping the Niagara 
River running. This can be challenging during the winter months, when 
sub-zero temperatures produce an ice cover on Lake Erie that can be up 
to 12 feet thick. The ice boom at the eastern end of Lake Erie, composed 
of floating steel pontoons, is used to reduce the volume of ice released 
into the upper Niagara River.

Real-time weather data

Features include an interactive mapper for viewing temperatures, 
visibility, skycover, wind direction and more. You also can view current 
images of snow cover and depth, courtesy of NOAA and the U.S. Air Force.

Illinois and Michigan Canal Corridor
http://www.canalcor.org/
The Illinois and Michigan Canal Corridor is one of the best-kept secrets 
in all of American history. Though few people today know how important 
it was to find a way of linking the Great Lakes with the Illinois and 
Mississippi rivers, everyone knew it back in 1848. The Canal Corridor 
Association (CCA) celebrates the region's history, preserves its natural 
and cultural landscapes, and contributes to a healthy regional economy.
