met: Sample met Object

Description Details Source See Also


This is sample met object containing data for Halifax, Nova Scotia, during September of 2003 (the period during which Hurricane Juan struck the city).


The data file was downloaded with

metFile <- download.met(id=6358, year=2003, month=9, destdir=".")
met <- read.met(metFile)
met <- oceSetData(met, "time", met[["time"]]+4*3600,
                 note="add 4h to local time to get UTC time")

Using download.met avoids having to navigate the the awkward Environment Canada website, but it imposes the burden of having to know the station number. See the documentation for download.met for more details on station numbers.
