attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Green, SalishSeaCast, 3d Biology Fields, Monthly, v19-05

3d SMELT biological model field values averaged over 1 month intervals
from SalishSeaCast NEMO model runs with physics, biology and chemistry.
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;
e.g. the field average values for January 2007 have a time value of 2007-01-16 12:00:00Z.
Geo-location and depth data for the Salish Sea NEMO model grid are available in the ubcSSnBathymetry2V17-02 dataset.

v19-05: Micromolar concentrations of ammonium, biogenic silicon, ciliates (mesodinium rubrum),
diatoms, dissolved organic nitrogen, flagellates (nanophytoplankton), mesozooplankton, microzooplankton,
nitrate, particulate organic nitrogen, silicon.
Fraser River water turbidity tracer variables.
