This product shows the rain accumulation, in mm, over the last 24 hour period based on PRECIP-ET and DPQPE. For PRECIP-ET, this product is available every 10 minutes for C-Band radars and every 6 minutes for S-Band radars. For DPQPE, this product is available every 6 minutes.
Due to the curvature of the Earth, the height of a radar beam, in relation to the ground, increases as it travels further from the radar. When the radar is pointed down near the ground (a low elevation angle), the beam starts off near the ground but then its height above the ground slowly increases. By the time that same beam is 200 km from the radar, it is at a height of around 4 km above the ground. In order to get a better sense of what is happening at one approximate height above the ground (i.e. 1.5 km), …
DPQPE product: DPQPE stands for: Dual Polarization Quantitative Precipitation Estimation. The DPQPE product is available only for S-Band radars. It is a two-dimensional representation of the precipitation rate estimated by the lowest sweep of the radar (elevation angle of 0.4 degrees for the majority of S-Band radars). Thus, the precipitation rate is estimated as close to the earth's surface as possible. The DPQPE product is based, among other things, on a series of polarimetric processing steps (quality control) to eliminate non-meteorological artifacts from the raw data (volumetric scans). It renders in mm/h for rain and cm/h for snow. This product …
The PRECIP-ET (PRECIPET on images) is an extension of the PRECIP product (hence the use of ET in the product name). Compared to the previous PRECIP product, the PRECIP-ET performs a suite of additional quality control (QC) tests and tracks issues better. For example, Doppler filters might be rejecting moderate ground echoes in a particular area and thus weak meteorological echoes would not be detectible. In this case, PRECIP-ET would flag the missing data area, whereas PRECIP would simply treat the area as no echoes. This additional quality treatment is why we have migrated to PRECIP-ET in 2013, to get …
The Privy Council Office's Results and Delivery Unit provides a list of all commitments that are in the Prime Minister's mandate letters to ministers.
The Wrecked, Abandoned or Hazardous Vessels Act (WAHVA) public record fulfills obligations set out under section 107 of the Act, which requires the Minister of Transport to maintain and disclose a public record of all notices of violation and notices of default issued under the Act. The public record publishes the nature of the violation committed under the WAHVA, the name of the person or vessel that committed it, and the corresponding penalty amount. The record is online as of August 1st, 2019 and includes data only when violations are found under the WAHVA.
The "Canadian Database of Geochemical Surveys" has two long-term goals. Firstly, it aims to catalogue all of the regional geochemical surveys that have been carried out across Canada, beginning in the 1950s. Secondly, it aims to make the raw data from those surveys available in a standardised format. Over 1,500 surveys have been catalogued. Of these, the raw data for over 300 have been converted to a standardised format. The catalogue can be searched at https:\geochem.nrcan.gc.ca
The Minister’s Advisory Council on impact assessment provides the Minister of Environment and Climate Change with non-partisan advice and recommendations on issues related to the implementation of the impact assessment, regional and strategic assessment regimes set out under the Impact Assessment Act (IAA).
The mandate of the Council is to provide advice to the Minister on the implementation of the impact assessment regime in relation to the purposes set out for it in the IAA.
The Council will focus its advice to the Minister on the governance of the regime, the effectiveness and efficiency of the processes established under the …

Today's Honour Roll recognizes the men and women of the military who fell on this day in history. This data is derived from the Canadian Virtual War Memorial (CVWM) – a registry of the more than 118,000 Canadians and Newfoundlanders who have given their lives serving Canada or the United Kingdom – established to allow all Canadians the opportunity to honour and remember their sacrifices.
