attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Green, Salish Sea, 3d Near Surface v Velocity Field, 20min, v18-12

Variable values at the 3d meridional (v) component velocity grid points
of the surface-most 5 layers, averaged over 20 minute intervals from Salish Sea NEMO model physics-only runs.
The values are for a sub-domain of the calculated model grid. The sub-domain covers only
the Juan de Fuca Strait, and the Strait of Georgia 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 ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 dataset.
