Comments[edit]

How can it be the most powerful of europe, in volume, if the Rheinfalls in Shaffhausen, Switzerland, have a volumic discharge 3 times higher? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.214.60.141 (talk) 05:12, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I suspect the wikipedia write-up is a slight exaggeration/simplification of the original source-material, which uses the term "magnitude." Problem is, there doesn't seem to be a widely-accepted usage of this term (as a precise metric) as regards waterfalls. Rheinfall does indeed seem to be a "bigger" waterfall by most reasonable metrics. [1] vs. [2]. Editing the article accordingly, to "largest waterfall in Iceland" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.130.70.182 (talk) 17:21, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
