Service Description:

Daily sea surface temperature and salinity observations have been carried out at several locations on the coast of British Columbia since the early part of the 20th century. Observations started at the Pacific Biological Station (Departure Bay) in 1914, 11 stations were added in the mid-1930s and several more in the 1960s. The number of stations reporting at any given time has varied as sampling has been discontinued at some stations, and started or resumed at others. Presently termed the British Columbia Shore Station Oceanographic Program (BCSOP), there are 13 participating stations. Most of the stations are at lighthouses staffed by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, but three (Race Rocks, Amphitrite Point, and Active Pass) are sampled by contracted observers.

Depuis le début du 20e siècle, la température et salinité de surface de la mer ont été mesurées chaque jour à plusieurs endroits sur la côte de la Colombie-Britannique. Les observations ont commencé à la station biologique du Pacifique (Baie Departure) en 1914; 11 stations ont été ajoutées dans les années 1930, et plusieurs autres dans les années 1960. Le nombre de stations d'observation a varié parce que l'échantillonnage a été interrompu à certaines stations, et commencé ou repris à d'autres.
