This data product represents the biweekly volumetric soil moisture (percent saturated soil) for the surface layer, expressed as a difference from the long term average. The average is calculated from all available years for each location and each time period, based on the length of the satellite data record. Values higher than zero represent areas that are wetter than the long term average, and areas lower than zero represent areas drier than the long term average. The data is produced from passive microwave satellite data collected by the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite and converted to soil moisture using version 6.20 of the SMOS soil moisture processor.

This data set consists in a compilation of data acquired by aeromagnetic surveys in Canada, gridded at a 200 m and 1 km resolution. Magnetic anomalies show small variations in the magnetic field that are caused largely by variations in the magnetic properties of Earth's crust. The first vertical derivative of magnetic anomalies is calculated from the residual magnetic field and enhances the short wavelength component of the field. The magnetic character of a rock depends on its ferromagnetic mineral composition, its concentration and its deformational and metamorphic history.

CanVec contains more than 60 topographic features classes organized into 8 themes: Transport Features, Administrative Features, Hydro Features, Land Features, Manmade Features, Elevation Features, Resource Management Features and Toponymic Features. This multiscale product originates from the best available geospatial data sources covering Canadian territory. It offers quality topographic information in vector format complying with international geomatics standards. CanVec can be used in Web Map Services (WMS) and geographic information systems (GIS) applications and used to produce thematic maps.

Atlantic herring NAFO 4T commercial landings data. Landings (in metric tons) per year, per stock (spring spawners and fall spawners), per fishing season (spring and fall) and per gear (fixed and mobile). Two fish samples are taken per week per herring fishing area to determine stock identification (spring or fall spawners). Daily landings data are obtained from DFO Statistics Branch.

A Conservation Unit (CU) is a group of wild Pacific salmon sufficiently isolated from other groups that, if extirpated, is very unlikely to recolonize naturally within an acceptable timeframe, such as a human lifetime or a specified number of salmon generations. Holtby and Ciruna (2007) provided a framework for aggregating the five species of salmon (genus Oncorhynchus) found on Canada’s Pacific coast into species-specific CUs based on three primary characteristics: ecotypology, life history and genetics. The first stage in the description of the Conservation Units is based solely on ecology. The ecotypologies used in this framework include a combined characterization of both freshwater and near-shore marine environments, and is termed “joint adaptive zone”.
