Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) 50 North Atlantic Wave Hindcast

Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) 50 North Atlantic Wave Hindcast 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 East Coast for the period 1954-2018 (each statistic has an annual, 4 seasonal, and 12 monthly values). These data can be used for characterization of marine surface wind and wave climate conditions, trends and variability for Canadian waters (East Coast), and for use of coastal and offshore operations/risk management (e.g., oil platforms, shipping). The hourly wind and wave’s data may be obtained upon request from the Meteorological Service of Canada's Climate Services. 2021-07-30 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentSurface (10m) wind speedwind directionocean surface wavessignificant wave heightsmean wave periodwave directionClimateClimatologymeteorologyatmosphereWeather and Climate View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-50-north-atlantic-wave-hindcast/ View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-50-north-atlantic-wave-hindcast/?lang=fr zJClim2002-Vol15-p1020-1035.pdfPDF https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-50-north-atlantic-wave-hindcast/zJClim2002-Vol15-p1020-1035.pdf Swail_etal_2006_MSC50.pdfPDF https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-50-north-atlantic-wave-hindcast/Swail_etal_2006_MSC50.pdf Swail_Cox_MSC50.pdfPDF https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-50-north-atlantic-wave-hindcast/Swail_Cox_MSC50.pdf B_Fields_Statistics_Definition.docxDOCX https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-50-north-atlantic-wave-hindcast/B_Fields_Statistics_Definition.docx A_Abstract.docxDOCX https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/products/meteorological-service-of-canada-msc-50-north-atlantic-wave-hindcast/A_Abstract.docx MSC50 Wave Hindcast 1954-2015ZIP ftp://ccrp.tor.ec.gc.ca/pub/MSC50_Wave_Hindcast/MSC50_Wave_Hindcast_1954-2018.zip
