attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Green, Salish Sea, 3d w Grid Variable Fields, Monthly, v19-05

Variable values at the 3d vertical (w) component velocity grid points 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 SalishSeaCast NEMO model grid are available in the ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 dataset.

v19-05: vVelocity, turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate, vertical eddy diffusivity, vertical eddy viscosity variables.
NEMO-3.6 SalishSeaCast-201905 configuration; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry;
