Fisheries and Oceans Canada Data from BC lightstations Daily sea surface temperature and salinity observations have been carried out at several locations on the coast of British Columbia since the early part of the 20th century. Data from BC lightstations
Fisheries and Oceans Canada Buoy Weather Data Sixteen offshore weather buoys are maintained by Environment Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada in association with Axys, a private company in Sidney, B.C. The buoys measure general weather information in the marine area around British Columbia and report their data to Environment Canada via satellite. Buoy Weather Data
Fisheries and Oceans Canada Oceanographic databases This page provides access to a number of databases maintained by Ocean Sciences at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. The databases include temperature-salinity profiles for the NW Atlantic, sea-surface temperature and chlorophyll from satellite, monthly statistics of ocean currents and other moored instruments, and daily temperature observations from coastal thermographs. Oceanographic databases
Fisheries and Oceans Canada Data archive The types of data included in the archive include :vertical profiles of temperature and salinity (these constitute the bulk of the data holdings). These data were collected from water samples ("bottle data") or from automated electronic profiling systems (CTD). The older data (before the mid-70's) is predominantly composed of "bottle" data, as electronic profilers were not widely used before this period.vertical profiles other chemical/biological water properties, including dissolved oxygen, nutrients, chlorophyll, dissolved organic carbon, particulate organic carbon and other parameters.time series from moored sub-surface instruments, including current meters, tide gauges, thermistor chainstime series of meteorological/oceanographic data from moored buoystime series of sea surface temperature and salinity from coast stations (the "Lighthouse" data)"track observations" - physical and chemical parameters collected from a fixed depth along the track of a research vesseltime series of meteorological observations (from the Department of Environment -Atmospheric Environment Service)time series of "useful" climate indicators. Selected indices of climate conditions. About the data archive

Fisheries and Oceans Canada Canadian Tides and Water Levels Data Archive The Canadian tide and water level data archive presently holds water level observations reported from over a thousand stations, with the earliest dating back to 1848. The number of observations spans on average 6 years per station, with 60 stations measuring water levels for over 50 years. Canadian Tides and Water Levels Data Archive
