.Lake Superior (known as Gichigami in an Ojibwe language), bounded by
Ontario and Minnesota to the north and Wisconsin and Michigan in the
south, is the largest of North America's Great Lakes. It is the world's
second largest lake, and the world's largest freshwater lake (by area).Lake
Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area.
Lake Baikal in Siberia is larger by volume, as is Lake Tanganyika in
central Africa, which is estimated to contain a volume of 18,900 km³.
The Caspian Sea, while larger than Lake Superior in both surface area
and volume, contains salt water. Lake Superior (48°00N, 88°00W)
has a surface area of 31,700 sq. mi. (82,100 km²)which is
larger than South Carolina. It has a maximum length of 350 mi (563 km)
and maximum breadth of 160 mi (257 km). Its average depth is 483 ft
(147 m) with a maximum depth of 1,332 ft (406 m). Lake Superior contains
2,935 mi³ (12,232 km³) of water. The shoreline of the lake
stretches 2,726 miles (4385 km) (including islands). The lake's elevation
is 602 ft (183 m) above sea level. The lake is fed by over 200 rivers.
The largest include the Nipigon River, the St. Louis River, the Pigeon
River, the Pic River, the White River, the Michipicoten River and the
Kaministiquia River. Lake Superior drains into Lake Huron by the St.
Marys River. The rapids on the river necessitate the Sault Locks (pronounced
"soo"), a part of the Great Lakes Waterway, to move boats
over the 25 foot height difference from Lake Huron. The largest island
in Lake Superior is Isle Royale. The larger towns on Lake Superior include:
the twin ports of Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin; Thunder
Bay, Ontario; Marquette, Michigan. (wikipedia)
