This paper presents certain factors which have not been discussed adequately in previous dissertations concerning winds, wind set-ups, and seiches on Lake Erie. These factors include the importance of atmospheric stability in determining the over-water wind speeds the effect that Pelee Point and the islands in the western end of the lake have on the flow of displaced water and the effects which seiches and local distrubances have on the water levels recorded at the gaging sites. Also, a simple, accurate method of forecasting the water level rise at Buffalo is given. Author
