An analysis of the historic water level fluctuations between 1850 and 2016 was completed for Lake Erie and
Lake Michigan-Huron, based on historical records, to determine the major harmonic constituents with periods
less than about 60 years. These data were supplemented with paleo lake levels derived from beach ridge
records and reconstructed lake levels from tree-ring chronologies.
