Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report examines the potential influence of climate change on Great Lakes coastal storms to project possible future impacts on wave heights and storm surges. This report contains two technical reports as well as a synthesis report. The first report examines changes in synoptic weather patterns, and ice cover to assess future changes in the frequency of storm events over Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The second lays out the creation of wave modeling and prediction for Lake Erie and Ontario. The findings of the report supported four coastal adaptation case studies as part of the study 'Adapting to the Future Storm and Ice Regime in the Great Lakes'.
