As an example, a waterfall which features two truly free-falling leaps separated by several dozen yards of flat stream will have a Pitch of 90 degrees.

Stretches of interstitial stream in between two or more distinct drops of a single waterfall are NOT considered to be distinct drops of the waterfall unless the section of stream in question would otherwise qualify as a waterfall were it to be isolated. Geodata may not be accurate, the location may not be known at all, and statistical information will be estimated and highly inaccurate.

The Average Width of the waterfall represents the breadth of the waterfall from bank to bank under typical flow conditions, or if the waterfall has been Cataloged, under the conditions which it was most thoroughly surveyed.

For smaller waterfalls, this figure will generally not differ much from the Average Width measurement, but for broader waterfalls – especially those that feature a crest that isn’t constricted – this figure can at times be consideraby larger. Along the way there are lush meadows and running streams and the view from of the waterfall, framed by the There may be variance within the range specified where the flow will be better or worse, but visiting at any time in the range specified if available will generally present the waterfall in its best light.
