  Lake Huron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lake Huron, bounded on the west by Michigan and on the east by Ontario, is one of the five Great Lakes of North America.
Lake Huron (45°00’N 83°00’W) is the second-largest of the Great Lakes, with a surface area of 23,000 sq mi (59,600 sq km)--nearly the size of West Virginia, making it the third largest fresh water lake on earth (4th if you include the Caspian Sea).
Lake Huron is separated from Lake Michigan, which lies at the same level, and connects by the narrow Straits of Mackinac, making them geologically and hydrologically the same body of water (sometimes called Lake Michigan-Huron).

 Huron, Lake. The Columbia Gazetteer of North America. 2000
Large tributaries flowing into the lake include the Mississagi, Wanapitei, Spanish, and French rivers from Ont., and the Au Sable and Saginaw rivers from Mich. The N shoreline is irregular, with many bays and inlets; the largest are Georgian Bay and North Channel, which indent the Ont. shore and are nearly landlocked by Manitoulin Isl.
Huron is part of the Great Lakes–St. Lawrence Seaway system and is navigated by oceangoing and lake vessels that carry cargoes of iron ore, grain, coal, limestone, and other goods.
The principal lakeshore cities are Port Huron, Mich., and Sarnia, Ont., at the lake’s outlet; Owen Sound, Midland, and Parry Sound, Ont.; and Bay City, Alpena, and Cheboygan, Mich. The waters of the lake are relatively unpolluted; commercial and sport fishing is important, and several resorts are located along the lake shore.

 Lake Michigan-Huron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lake Michigan-Huron is a designation sometimes given to the body of water (part of the North American Great Lakes) customarily referred to as two separate lakes: Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.
If designated as a single entity, Lake Michigan-Huron would be the largest of the Great Lakes in terms of surface area, at 45,410 square miles, and would be the largest freshwater lake in the world.
Lake Superior still surpasses Lake Michigan-Huron in terms of overall water volume, containing nearly 3000 cubic miles (13,000 km³) of water, compared to Michigan-Huron's 2000 cubic miles (8,000 km³).

This effect is more pronounced in bays and at the extremities of the lake, where the impelled water is concentrated in a small space by converging shores, especially if coupled with a gradually sloaping inshore bottom which even further reduces the flow of the lower return currents.
