D. T. Resio, C. L. Vincent

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This report contains hindcast wave information that is applicable to many planning and design purposes on Lake Huron. Historical wind data from stations along Lake Huron served as input to the numerical hindcast model, and significant wave heights were calculated for 5-, 10-, 20-, 50-, and 100-yr. return periods. Thee results are provided in tabular form for 28 points along the Lake Huron shoreline. The mean significant period for each of these wave heights is also given. Information is provided for four seasons for the year (January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December) and is separated into three approach directions relative to shore. (A)
