Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report contains hindcast wave information that is applicable to many planning and design purposes on Lake Superior. Historical wind data from stations along Lake Superior served as input to the numerical 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 57 points along the Lake Superior 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.
