2d sea surface height values averaged over 1 hour intervals
from Salish Sea NEMO model runs with physics, biology and chemistry. The values are calculated for the surface of the 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: sea surface height and rainfall rate variables
v16-10: NEMO-3.6; ubcSSnBathymetry2V16-07 bathymetry; see infoUrl link for full details.
Deleted rainfall rate variable.
v17-02: NEMO-3.6; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry; see infoUrl link for full details.
Added mixed layer depth variable (dsigma = 0.01 wrt 10m)
v18-06: NEMO-3.6 SalishSeaCast-201806 configuration; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry;
see infoUrl link for full details.
Removed mixed layer depth variable.
v18-12: NEMO-3.6 SalishSeaCast-201812 configuration; ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 bathymetry;
see infoUrl link for full details.
