Fact of the Day: Sea Lake

While Lake Superior is a true lake, its waters behave more like an in-land sea than a typical lake.

A very interesting fact, Adam.
It got me to look it up - I actually have sailed on it and I wasn't sea sick!!!

With the size - same area as your state, South Carolina or if you prefer Europe - then Austria, the size is really amazing.
I suppose when storms occur and it has waves of 6 metres in height, then you could do surf board riding!
That would be something to see so far inland from the ocean.
Cheers - good, interesting fact - well done.

I've read that the great Lakes contain one seventh of all the fresh water on Earth. I wonder if this is true.

That could be possible Stephen.
When you take in ALL the lakes of that Canadian/USA system, it is a great volume of water.
