Variable measured
  • Variable name: Average air humidity  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: Percentage  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=577886
  • 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=577891
  • Variable name: Average ground 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=577892
  • Variable name: Average wind speed  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: Meter per second  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=577895
  • 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=577889
  • Variable name: Maximum wind speed  Variable description: The maximum is determined by selecting the highest value obtained during the observation of the last hour.  Variable unit: Meter per second  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=577894
  • Variable name: Minimum air temperature  Variable description: The minimum is determined by selecting the lowest value obtained during the observation of the last hour.  Variable unit: Degree Celsius  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=577890
  • Variable name: Sample on wind direction  Variable description: Sample took from the readings obtained during the last hour. The sample is taken on the 60 readings generated per hour.  Variable unit: Degree  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=577893
