Cape St. James, British Columbia, is located on the southeastern tip of St. James Island (one of the Queen Charlotte Islands) about 160 km west of the British Columbia mainland. In 1982, the station replaced Ocean Weather Station ?P? located in Gulf of Alaska. St. James Island has a maximum elevation of 115 km above sea level, and is about 1 km long and 0.5 km wide. The actual sampling site is surrounded mostly with low growing vegetation such as grass, lichens and shrubs, with major forested areas to the north of the site. The sampling at Cape St. James was terminated in August 1992 when the surface air station at the site was automated.
