Three-dimensional Simulations of Tides and Buoyancy Currents, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
Entry ID: GLOBEC_025_CAN_002


Summary
Abstract: The dataset consists of three-dimensional (3D) tidal and
buoyancy/wind-driven model circulation fields for the western continental
margin of Vancouver Island, with averages for summer and winter. The parameters
are computer generated 3-D currents and sigma-t values. The physical component
is a 3-D prognostic finite element model, that extends from 47-51N, eastward of
the 3500m depth contour, halfway up Juan de Fuca Strait. The physical model
will be calibrated and evaluated with both historical data and measurements.

Purpose: Integration of monitoring and process study work, into a coupled
physical/plankton/fish model for the western continental margin of Vancouver
Island.
