attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Forecast, Victoria, Sea Surface Height, 10min

Rolling daily forecast of sea surface height values averaged over 10 minute intervals from
SalishSeaCast NEMO model runs with physics and biology. The values are calculated at the model grid point
closest to the Victoria tide gauge station in Esquimalt Harbour,
near Victoria, British Columbia.
The time values are UTC.
They are the centres of the intervals over which the calculated model results are averaged;
e.g. the field average values for the 00:00 to 0:10 UTC 10 minute period on 2021-06-03 have a time value of 2021-06-03 00:05:00Z.
Geo-location and depth data for the SalishSeaCast 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 00:05:00 UTC 5 days prior to the most recently completed forecast run,
and extends to 11:55:00 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 00:05:00 UTC to 2017-11-12 11:55:00 UTC.
