Suur, suurem / Big, bigger (6) - Dettifoss

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 21 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

Dettifoss waterfall in Northeast Iceland is referred everywhere as the most powerful waterfall in Europe in terms of average water flow per second (193 m3/s). Afer some search one can find that Urridafoss, situating in North Iceland as well, is sometimes claimed to have even bigger flow (360 m3/s).

Dettifoss, mis paikneb Põhja-Islandil, on tuntud Euroopa võimsaima joana keskmise vee hulga mõttes (193 m3/s). Siiski leidub ka allikaid, mis väidavad samuti Põhja-Islandil asuva Urridafossi vee voolu olevat veelgi vägevama (lausa 360 m3/s).
