Salish Sea NEMO Model (Green) Hourly 3D U-velocity v19-05

Variable values at the 3d zonal (u) component velocity grid points 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 ubcSSnBathymetryV17-02 dataset.
