Environmental data from Boniface river region in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada

Data are from Boniface river region in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada. It contains data from air and ground temperatures, air humidity, solar radiation, wind speed and direction and the average snow height. The available datasets cover the period from 1988-2019. For each site, the number of measured variables differs. For ground temperature, the depth ranges are as follows: Rivière Boniface, Forêt (BONFORE): 0-150 cm. Rivière Boniface, Forêt - Station SILA (BONFSIL): 5-20 cm. Rivière Boniface, Toundra - Station SILA (BONTSIL): 5-100 cm. Lac Bush (LACBUSH): 0-100 cm. Data are available as: (1) recorded data; (2) daily averages; (3) monthly averages; and (4) yearly averages.

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=594120
  • 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=594124
  • Variable name: Average downwelling radiation  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: Watt per square meter  Variable URL: http://www.cen.ulaval.ca/nordicanad/infounitedonnees.aspx?id=594121
  • Variable name: Average ground temperature  Variable description: Average data recorded every minute for the previous period.
