Found 10 records similar to Great Lakes Mesoscale Boundary Database


Mesoscale boundaries have an important influence on mesoscale weather. They can trigger, enhance or inhibit convections and severe weather. They are also indicators of shifts in wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity, and can affect air quality and heat indices. Around the Great Lakes, it has been observed that mesoscale boundaries are prevalent and can have complex interactions between each other.

Assessment Watersheds are mesoscale aquatic units designed to replace the 3rd order 1:50K watersheds. Assessment Watersheds are based on groupings of fundamental watersheds using FWA watershed code and local code, with a target size of between 2,000ha and 10,000ha.

The Great Lakes Basin Integrated Nutrient Dataset compiles and standardizes phosphorus, nitrogen, and suspended solids data collected between the 2000-2019 water years from multiple Canadian and American sources around the Great Lakes. Ultimately, the goal is to enable regional nutrient data analysis within the Great Lakes Basin. This data is not directly used in the Water Quality Monitoring and Surveillance Division tributary load calculations. Data processing steps include standardizing data column and nutrient names, date-time conversion to Universal Time Coordinates, normalizing concentration units to milligram per liter, and reporting all phosphorus and nitrogen compounds 'as phosphorus' or 'as nitrogen'.

The Pan and Parapan American Games are a regional international summer sporting event, staged every 4 years in the year prior to the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. The 2015 Games were awarded to Canada on November 6, 2009, by the Pan American Sports Organization. The XVII Pan American Games and the V Parapan American Games were held in Toronto, Canada, from July 10–26, 2015, and from August 7–15, 2015, respectively. Canada welcomed the 40 other countries/nations of the Americas to Toronto and the municipalities of the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area in Ontario where the summer sports events of the 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games were hosted.

Here is data coming from a balloon, as high as the Eiffel all, and whose utility is to test new technology applications before being placed on satellites for long-duration space missions. This dataset contains the telemetry data obtained from the different sub systems during the AUSTRAL2017 mission and two sets of pictures from different cameras. The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) STRATOS program participated in the AUSTRAL2017 flight campaign which took place in Australia on April 8, 2017. One of the goals of this flight was to launch hardware at altitudes of around 40 kilometres and observe the different data that was captured throughout the flight.

The radar network consists of 31 weather radars spanning Canada's most populated regions, providing coverage to over 95% of the population. The network's primary purpose is the early detection of developing thunderstorms and high impact weather.

This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for stream sediment samples for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. The sampling includes sampling a total of nine rivers across PEI, with three of the rivers being sampled each year. Sediment samples are collected once in July, twice in August (once during a normal/dry weather and once during wet weather), and once in September. The two samples in July and September are collected during dry weather.

Ten 10-m ATMOS surface weather stations were deployed during the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games as the foundation of the high-resolution atmospheric monitoring network, the Mesonet, built by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) in support of the Games. The ATMOS stations collected 1.5-m temperature and humidity, pressure, 10-m wind speed and direction, insolation, black globe temperature, precipitation, and the difference in temperature between the top and bottom of the tower (local stability). Samples were made every 5 seconds and these were used to generate 1-min averages. Data then underwent thorough quality control.
