Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report contains hindcast wave information that is applicable to many planning and design purposes on Lake Michigan. Historical wind data from six stations along Lake Michigan served as input to the numeri cal hindcast model, and significant wave heights were calculated for 5-, 10-, 20-, 50-, and 100-yr return periods . These results are provided in tabular form for 64 points along the Lake Michigan shoreline. The mean significant period for each of these wave heights is also given. Information is provided for four seasons of the year (January- March, April-June, July-September, and October-December) and is separated into three approach directions relative to shore.
