SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
Monitoring is carried out for three different periods:
When possible, temperature and salinity are measured during collector installation and recovery. At each collector recovery date, the percent cover of each AIS present on collectors is evaluated and assigned into one of six coverage categories:
|Coverage class used for data collection||Percent cover
(plate and petri dish)
|Quantitative value retained for display
(median of class)
|0||0 %||0 %|
|1||0-25 %||12,5 %|
|2||25-50 %||37,5 %|
|3||50-75 %||62,5 %|
|4||75-100 %||87,5 %|
|5||100 %||100 %|
The display on the map, for each cell or point, corresponds to the average value of all the data contained therein. For example, if for a given station there are 12 recorded, the mapped value will be equal to the average of these 12 values.
