Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) Beaufort Wind and Wave Reanalysis This dataset contains 21 statistics of wind and waves calculated from hourly reanalysis data of historical surface winds and ocean surface waves for the Canadian Beaufort Sea for the period 1970-2015 (each statistic has an annual and 12 monthly values). These data can be used for characterization of marine surface wind and wave climate conditions, trends and variability for Canadian Arctic waters, for use of coastal and offshore operations/risk management (e.g., shipping). The hourly wind and waves data may be obtained upon request from the Meteorological Service of Canada's Climate Services. 2016-10-24 2017-06-20 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentSurface (10m) wind speedwind directionocean surface wavessignificant wave heightsmean wave periodwave direction MSC Beaufort Wind Wave 1970-2015ZIP ftp://ccrp.tor.ec.gc.ca/pub/MSC_Beaufort_Wind_Wave/MSC_Beaufort_Wind_Wave_1970-2015.zip A_Abstract.docxDOCX http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-beaufort-wind-and-wave-reanalysis/A_Abstract.docx B_Fields_Statistics_Definition.docxDOCX http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-beaufort-wind-and-wave-reanalysis/B_Fields_Statistics_Definition.docx zJClim2015_Wang_etal_BCBwaves.pdfPDF http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-beaufort-wind-and-wave-reanalysis/zJClim2015_Wang_etal_BCBwaves.pdf View EC Data Mart (English)HTML http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-beaufort-wind-and-wave-reanalysis View EC Data Mart (French)HTML http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-beaufort-wind-and-wave-reanalysis?lang=fr
