attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Forecast, Salish Sea, Near-surface Depth Averaged Currents, 1h, v18-106
Rolling daily forecast of eastward and northward water current component field values averaged over 1 hour intervals for the upper 5 and 10 metres of depth from Salish Sea NEMO model runs with physics and biology.
The values are calculated for the entire model grid that includes the Juan de Fuca Strait,
the Strait of Georgia, Puget Sound,
and Johnstone Strait on the coasts of Washington State and British Columbia.
The time values are UTC. They are the centres of the intervals over which the calculated model results are averaged.
The velocity component values are averaged over the upper 5 and 10 metre depths.
Geo-location and depth data for the Salish Sea NEMO model grid are available in the ubcSSnBathymetry2V17-02 dataset.

This dataset is updated daily to move it forward 1 day in time.
It starts at 00:00:00 UTC 5 days prior to the most recently completed forecast run,
and extends to 11:30:00 UTC on the 2nd day after the forecast run date.
So, for example, after completion of the 10-Nov-2017 forecast run,
this dataset included data from 2017-11-05 00:00:00 UTC to 2017-11-12 11:30:00 UTC.

v17-02: VelEast10, VelEast5, VelNorth10, VelNorth5 variables; NEMO-3.6; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry; see infoUrl link for full details.
v18-06: NEMO-3.6 SalishSeaCast-201806 configuration; ubcSSnBathymetry2V17-02 bathymetry;
see infoUrl link for full details.
