Abstract In this paper, the operational 3D variational data assimilation system (3D‐var) of the Canadian Meteorological Centre (CMC) is described and its performance is compared to that of the previously operational statistical interpolation analysis. Deliberately configuring the 3D‐var to be as...
Abstract Land surface schemes are used in climate and weather forecasting models at various resolutions requiring the use of effective or aggregated parameters to adequately represent each grid square. In this study we investigate the rules for aggregating the surface parameters for the Canadian...
Abstract The physical mechanism that causes an interdecadal oscillation in a coarse resolution sector ocean model forced by mixed boundary conditions is studied. The oscillation is characterized by large fluctuations in convective activity and air/sea heat exchange on a decadal timescale....
Abstract The freshwater discharge at the head of the St. Lawrence Estuary near Québec city in eastern Canada, was monitored at monthly timescales from 1955 to 1988 by the Quebec Department of Environment and Fauna (DEF). Since 1988, these estimates have been discontinued. Using the 1962–1988...
Abstract An analysis of sea level variability during summer indicates that semi‐diurnal and diurnal tidal components are rapidly attenuated as they propagate into the Bras d'Or Lakes. On the other hand, low frequency sea level fluctuations originating in Sydney Bight, immediately outside the...
