Seasonal current speed climatology of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone from BCCM model (1981-2010)

Seasonal current speed climatology of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone from BCCM model (1981-2010) Seasonal mean current speed from the British Columbia continental margin model (BCCM) were calculated as the root mean square of the zonal (U) and meridional (V) velocities and averaged over the 1981 to 2010 period to create seasonal mean climatology of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone. Current speeds at up to forty-six linearly interpolated vertical levels from surface to 2400 m and at the sea bottom are included. Spring months were defined as April to June, summer months were defined as July to September, fall months were defined as October to December, and winter months were defined as January to March. The data available here contain raster layers of seasonal current speed climatology for the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone at 3 km spatial resolution and 47 vertical levels. 2021-08-11 Fisheries and Oceans Canada Angelica.Pena@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyClimatologyOceansClimateModelling Data DictionaryPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_CPEEZ_BCCM_1981_2010/Data_Dictionary_EN_FR_Seasonal_Climatologies_BCCM_1981-2010.pdf ReferencesPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_CPEEZ_BCCM_1981_2010/References_EN_FR_Seasonal_Climatologies_BCCM_1981-2010.pdf Seasonal current speed climatology of the CPEEZ from BCCM model (1981-2010) - SummerGeoTIF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Current_Speed_Climatology_CPEEZ_BC_BCCM_1981_2010/Speed_sum.zip Seasonal current speed climatology of the CPEEZ from BCCM model (1981-2010) - WinterGeoTIF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Current_Speed_Climatology_CPEEZ_BC_BCCM_1981_2010/Speed_win.zip Seasonal current speed climatology of the CPEEZ from BCCM model (1981-2010) - FallGeoTIF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Current_Speed_Climatology_CPEEZ_BC_BCCM_1981_2010/Speed_fal.zip Seasonal current speed climatology of the CPEEZ from BCCM model (1981-2010) - SpringGeoTIF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Current_Speed_Climatology_CPEEZ_BC_BCCM_1981_2010/Speed_spr.zip Seasonal current speed climatology of the CPEEZ from BCCM model (1981-2010)ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Seasonal_Current_Speed_Climatology_CPEEZ_BC_BCCM_1981_2010/MapServer Seasonal current speed climatology of the CPEEZ from BCCM model (1981-2010)ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Seasonal_Current_Speed_Climatology_CPEEZ_BC_BCCM_1981_2010/MapServer
