Seasonal Climatologies of the Northeast Pacific Ocean (1980-2010)

Seasonal Climatologies of the Northeast Pacific Ocean (1980-2010) Seasonal climatologies (temperature, salinity, and sigma-t) of the Northeast Pacific Ocean were computed from historical observations including all available conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD), bottle, expendable bathy-thermograph (XBT), and Argo data in NOAA (http://www.argo.ucsd.edu/), Marine Environmental Data Service (MEDS), and Institute of Ocean Sciences archives over 1980 to 2010 period in spatial resolution ranging from approximately 100m to 70km. Calculations, including smooth and interpolation, were carried out in sixty-five subregions and up to fifty-two vertical levels from surface to 5000m. Seasonal averages were computed as the median of yearly seasonal values. 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. 2021-05-31 Fisheries and Oceans Canada DFO.PAC.SCI.IOSData-Donnees.ISO.SCI.PAC.MPO@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentClimatologyNortheast Pacific OceanOceans Termperature ClimatologyCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_NEPacificOcean_1980_2010/Seasonal_temperature_climatology_NePO.zip Seasonal Climatologies of the Northeast Pacific Ocean (1980-2010)/Les données climatologiques saisonnières de l’océan Pacifique Nord-Est (1980-2010)ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Seasonal_Climatologies_NEPacificOcean_1980_2010/MapServer/0 Seasonal Climatologies of the Northeast Pacific Ocean (1980-2010)/Les données climatologiques saisonnières de l’océan Pacifique Nord-Est (1980-2010)ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Seasonal_Climatologies_NEPacificOcean_1980_2010/MapServer/0 Salinity ClimatologyCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_NEPacificOcean_1980_2010/Seasonal_salinity_climatology_NePO.zip SigmaT ClimatologyCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_NEPacificOcean_1980_2010/Seasonal_sigmaT_climatology_NePO.zip ReferencesPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_NEPacificOcean_1980_2010/References_EN_FR_Seasonal_Climatologies_NePO.pdf Data DictionaryHTML https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_NEPacificOcean_1980_2010/Data_Dictionary_EN_FR_Seasonal_Climatologies_NePO.htm
