Bohr on the Chinese river of Funchunjiang

One of the most impressive natural species in the world is boron on the Chinese river of Fuchunjiang. A huge tidal wave, which reaches up to 9 meters in height and speeds up to 40 km / h, attracts a lot of spectators. Tourists come here to see how boron beats against the shore.

Although there are many other tidal borers in the world, the spectacle on the river Fuchunjiang is incomparable. Mention of the local tidal wave is dated 3 thousand years.

To form a tidal boron, the mouth of the river should be shallow and funnel-shaped. The water levels during high tide and tide should be radically different. Water is confined to the narrow mouth of the river and, stranding, starts to move very quickly, forming waves. In the end, the waves break, forming a burr.

Bor of the Fuchunjiang River is unique because of the Hangzhou Bay, into which the river joins. The bay is a giant triangle. In places it is more than 96 km wide, and near the city of Hangzhou is narrowed to 20 km.

The strength of boron can depend on other factors, including the weather. In 2013, a typhoon that landed in the east of China, led to the formation of waves in the Gulf of Hangzhou. Their height exceeded 18 meters, the number of victims exceeded 30 people.
