attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Green, Salish Sea, 3d Tracer Fields, Hourly, v18-06

3d salinity and water temperature field values averaged over 1 hour intervals
from Salish Sea 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.
Geo-location and depth data for the Salish Sea NEMO model grid are available in the ubcSSnBathymetry2V17-02 dataset.

v1: salinity (practical) and temperature variables
v16-10: NEMO-3.6; ubcSSnBathymetry2V16-07 bathymetry; see infoUrl link for full details.
Changed salinity variable to reference salinity.
Changed temperature variable to conservative temperature.
Added squared buoyancy frequency variable.
v17-02: NEMO-3.6; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry; see infoUrl link for full details.
v18-06: NEMO-3.6 SalishSeaCast-201806 configuration; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry; see infoUrl link for full details.
Removed squared buoyancy frequency variable.
