Variable measured
  • Variable name: Average air temperature  Variable description: Average data recorded every minute for the previous period. The average is calculated by adding the measured values and then dividing the sum by the number of observations.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=580892
  • Variable name: Maximum air temperature  Variable description: The maximum is determined by selecting the highest value obtained during the observation of the last period.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=580890
  • Variable name: Minimum air temperature  Variable description: The minimum is determined by selecting the lowest value obtained during the observation of the last period.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=580891
