Seasonal Climatologies of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone (1980-2010)

Seasonal Climatologies of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone (1980-2010) Seasonal climatologies (temperature, salinity, sigma-t, and elevation) 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. 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. The data available here contain raster layers of seasonal climatologies (temperature, salinity, sigma-t, and elevation) for the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), a subset of seasonal climatologies of the Northeast Pacific Ocean, in high spatial resolution of 1/300 degree. 2021-05-31 Fisheries and Oceans Canada DFO.PAC.SCI.IOSData-Donnees.ISO.SCI.PAC.MPO@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyClimatologyOceans Seasonal temperature climatology of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone (1980-2010)HTML https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/d069a70d-3eae-4663-98bd-20a3f6b674c6 Seasonal salinity climatology of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone (1980-2010)HTML https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/e9034436-5954-4a31-b33c-cd5328436162 Seasonal sigma-t climatology of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone (1980-2010)HTML https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/d958ff1e-9fdc-4aea-a459-b69e5a164578 Data DictionaryPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_Can_Pacific_EEZ_1980_2010/Data_Dictionary_EN_FR_Seasonal_Climatologies_of_the_CPEEZ.pdf ReferencesPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Seasonal_Climatologies_Can_Pacific_EEZ_1980_2010/References_EN_FR_Seasonal_Climatologies_of_the_CPEEZ.pdf
