Abstract

This report contains hindcast wave information that is applicable to many planning and design purposes on Lake Ontario. Historical wind data from three stations along Lake Ontario served as input to the numerical hindcast model, and signficant wave heights were calculated for 5-, 10-, 20-, 50-, and 100-yr return periods. These results are provided in tabular form for 17 points along the Lake Ontario shoreline. The mean significant period for each of these wave heights is also given. Information is provided for four seasons of the year and is separated into three approach directions relative to shore.
