BC Marine Conservation Analysis

The Canadian Wind Energy Atlas is based on a set of quadrilateral meso-scale domains called "tiles". The juxtaposition of 65 partially overlapping tiles constitutes a representation of Canada's wind potential. On each tile, climate is characterized by a large set of weather conditions, providing over 200 different possible atmospheric states. The climatic modelling finds a spatial solution for the wind flow in each of those states. Results are then post-processed with a statistical model representing the dominant winds in order to obtain weighted average wind velocities. Full analysis methodology can be found at the following website:
This dataset identifies the location of sportfishing activities for prawn and shrimp along the coast of British Columbia.
These data were digitized from the Pacific Pilotage Regulations dated February 26, 2011 and show areas within the Canadian Pacific EEZ where ships transiting to and from Canadian ports are required to carry a certified pilot. Data extend inland to cover all relevant inlets and have not been clipped to a particular coastline.

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
