attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Green, Salish Sea, 3d Auxiliary Fields, Hourly, v19-05

3d auxiliary model field values averaged over 1 hour intervals
from SalishSeaCast NEMO model runs with physics, biology, and chemistry.
The values are calculated for the entire model grid that includes Juan de Fuca Strait,
he 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;
e.g. the field average values for the 00:00 to 01:00 UTC hour on 2021-06-03 have a time value of 2021-06-03 00:30:00Z.
Geo-location and depth data for the SalishSeaCast NEMO model grid are available in the ubcSSnBathymetry2V17-02 dataset.

v19-05: Photosynthetically available radiation (PAR), Potential density anomaly (sigma_theta),
Time-varying z-layer thickness (NEMO e3t), Fraser River water turbidity.
NEMO-3.6; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry; see infoUrl link for full details.
