attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Green, Salish Sea, 2d Depth-averaged Tracer Fields, Seasonal, v17-02

2d depth-averaged salinity and water temperature field values
averaged over 3 month seasonal intervals from Salish Sea NEMO model nowcast runs.
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 centre of the intervals over which the calculated model results are averaged.
The variable values are averaged over the upper 22 layers of the model grid,
approximately 0 to 30 metres depth.
Geo-location and depth data for the Salish Sea NEMO model grid are available in the ubcSSnBathymetry2V17-02 dataset.
