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