SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
The Atlas does not take in account the influence of local wind blowing over the Mingan Archipelago. These winds can generate surface currents that add to the tidal currents shown in this Atlas.
In particular, strong winds (more than 20 knots) over the Jacques Cartier Strait can generate surface currents that significantly affect the ones in the Mingan Archipelago. In the event of a Small Craft Warning issued by the Canadian Meteorological Service of Environment Canada, users should refer to the surface current forecast for the Jacques Cartier Strait under the section Ocean Forecasts of the St. Lawrence Global Observatory. The forecasted currents for this area will influence the ones in the Mingan Archipelago.
The Atlas of tidal currents in Mingan Archipelago is a product of the Pelagic and Ecosystem Science Branch and the Canadian Hydrographic Service, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Quebec Region.
