|Variable||Definition (all values in Watt/sq.meter)|
|E1||Time-averaged value of WE|
|E2||Standard deviation of WE. I.e. SquareRoot of the Time-averaged value of (WE-E1)**2|
|EH||Time Frequency histogram of WE.
Values occuring in the individual intervals defined by 8 tresholds:
0., 200., 300., 400., 500., 600., 800., 1000.
Grid description: the products are provided on a conformal map projection. Its definition is: Polar stereographic, true at 60N, on the spherical Earth datum, with a Earth radius of 6371.22 km. See here for technical aspects. The raster arrays have a size of 281 (along x-axis) x 301 (along y-axis) points (i.e. 84300 elements). For the GIS-type numerical data files, go here.
By importing into MapInfo, the MIF/MID file ( me_z0_mg.mif.zip and me_z0_mg.mid.zip see further below), one can create a thematic map of the model topography (ME variable in the file). By selecting the relief shading option and overlaying an outline of Canada (white line), one gets the following picture (the color legend is included, showing elevations in meter). The visual pixels correspond to the grid cells of 25 km.
