Abstract : A wave hindcast for Lake Erie at Cleveland, Ohio, has been prepared using 10 years of recorded wind data from Burke Lakefront Airport supplemented by wind data from Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Average monthly and annual significant wave height, significant period, directional distribution, and percentage of occurrence are tabulated for stations located at latitude 41 degrees 39.0 minutes N, longitude 81 degrees 33.5 minutes W and latitude 41 degrees 38.2 minutes N, longitude 81 degrees 42.4 minutes W. The average monthly and annual wind speed direction regimes are provided for the first station. Normal winds, normal waves, normal (long duration) water levels, storm winds, storm (short duration) water levels, and storm wave characteristics are included in the report. The storm wave characteristics section summarizes the results of a storm wave height and period analysis at the stations for the 30 most severe storms occurring during the hindcast period and for the severe storms of November 1913 and November 1950.
