What was the largest wave recorded on Lake Superior?

26 feet would be the (highest) significant wave height on Superior. This means that waves of 50 feet are possible. Some sailors have reported 40 feet (35 feet according to accounts FROM the S.S. Authur M. Anderson) the night the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald sank. The significant wave height is the average height of the highest one third of waves observed, and is the figure quoted by meteorologists when they report wave heights. The maximum wave height, according to most experts, can be up to 1.8 times (some say 2x) the significant wave height. A "rogue wave" is defined as a wave that exceeds twice the significant wave height. Recent research has shown that rogue waves, at least in the open ocean, are more common than previously believed. So it's possible that waves over 50 ft. in height might rarely occur on Lake Superior.

Why do waves increase in height as they reach the shore?

There is a circular current inside the waves and as they come closer to the shore the previous wave is pulled up into it and this gives the initial wave more height because they are now fused.
