"HRDPS, Salish Sea, Atmospheric Forcing Fields, Hourly, v1

2d hourly atmospheric field values from the
Environment Canada HRDPS atmospheric forcing model that are used to force the Salish Sea NEMO model.
The model grid includes the Juan de Fuca Strait, the Strait of Georgia, Puget Sound,
and Johnstone Strait on the coasts of Washington State and British Columbia.
Geo-location data for the atmospheric forcing grid are available in the ubcSSaAtmosphereGridV1 dataset.
Atmospheric field values are interpolated on to the Salish Sea NEMO model grid on-the-fly by NEMO.

Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its projection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

griddap request URLs must be in the form
For example,
Thus, the query is often a data variable name (e.g., analysed_sst), followed by [(start):stride:(stop)] (or a shorter variation of that) for each of the variable's dimensions (for example, [time][latitude][longitude]).

For details, see the griddap Documentation.
