attribute NC_GLOBAL project String Salish Sea MEOPAR NEMO Model
attribute NC_GLOBAL sourceUrl String (local files)
attribute NC_GLOBAL standard_name_vocabulary String CF Standard Name Table v29
attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String 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.

v1: atmospheric pressure, precipitation rate, 2m specific humidity, 2m air temperature,
short-wave radiation flux, long-wave radiation flux, 10m u wind component, 10m v wind component variables
