attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Green, Salish Sea, 3d Chemistry Fields, Hourly, v21-11

3d dissolved inorganic carbon, dissolved oxygen, and total alkalinity 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 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 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 ubcSSnBathymetryV21-08 dataset.

v21-11: NEMO-3.6 SalishSeaCast-202111 configuration; ubcSSnBathymetryV21-08 bathymetry;
see infoUrl link for full details.
Dissolved inorganic carbon, dissolved oxygen, and total alkalinity variables.
