**The time period of November through May** is an appropriate
period for a single model. We have an objective dataset selection scheme that
has narrowed down on the following parameters to be used as regression inputs:

- GAK1 Salinity, 10m
- GAK1 Dynamic Height, 0-250db
- Fresh Water Discharge, 4 month mean
- Middleton Island Cross-shore winds, 8-month mean

Using these inputs, our model explains 74% of the FWT variance, 75% of the
FWC variance and 63% of the BCT variance. We can use this model to construct
time series of the FWT, FWC and BCT fields over the course of our input time
series. As a coastal monitoring scheme, this is pretty exciting because going
out to make a CTD cast at station GAK1 is a whole lot less expensive than trying
to occupy the Cape Fairfield Line once a month.
