    LiveOcean is a computer model simulating ocean water properties in Puget Sound and the Pacific Northwest. It is produced by the University of Washington Ocean Modeling Group and makes three-day forecasts of currents, temperature, salinity and many biogeochemical fields including harmful algal blooms.

What's that in the water. A large patch of orange, brown, or green in the Puget Sound is likely to be a "bloom," or gathering of marine algae or plankton. These are types of water plants and animals. Learn more about algae and other plankton. Report sightings to our scientists.

Get this from a library. The plankton and the properties of the surface waters of the Puget Sound region. [Thomas G Thompson; Lyman De Armond Phifer].

In the Pacific Northwest of North America in the summer, warming land temperatures create favorable winds that blow offshore and push surface waters away from the coast. This causes cooler, nutrient-rich waters to well up from the depths and provide the right conditions for blooms.

(). Oceanographic Changes in Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca during the –01 Drought. Canadian Water Resources Journal / Revue canadienne des ressources hydriques: Vol. 28, No. 4, pp. Cited by: Puget Sound circulation is driven by tidal currents, the surface outflow of freshwater from Puget Sound rivers, and deep inflow of saltwater from the ocean; and is influenced by wind strength and direction.

Tidal currents dominate the circulation, and typically a two-layered pattern of estuarine circulation is superimposed on the tides. water properties at four beaches in the East Passage of Puget Sound during June March (Thom et al.

We concentrated on the Seahurst Bight, the beach for which. A research team led by Rebecca Neumann, Ph.D., and James Gawel, Ph.D., examined the movement of arsenic from sediments into water in four urban lakes, with varying levels of water mixing, in the Puget Sound region of Washington.

The relationship between salps is that the amphipods eat their insides and after, live in the hollowed region of the salp's body, a one host parasite True Because zooplankton do not need sunlight they tend to be more concentrated in deeper waters away from the surface.

The amount of that water that is relatively easily accessible and drinkable by humans is: in the Puget Sound region, posing threats to approximately 3, jobs and. During times of high productivity which plankton are notable for making the surface water appear milky or chalky. coccolithophores Researchers are able to directly measure the rate of productivity in experiments using a radioactively "tagged" atom.

The marine habitat of Puget Sound can be divided up into nearshore, benthic (associated with the sea floor), and pelagic (open water) habitats. This article focuses on the pelagic habitat within the Puget Sound.

This article was prepared as part of the Puget Sound Fact Book produced by the University of Washington Puget Sound Institute. Geographic Patterns of Fishes and Jellyfish in Puget Sound Surface Waters.

Murray, a chemical oceanographer, did calculations to trace the origin of water properties measured at the facility. He found that most water in the Sound is from the California Undercurrent, a subsurface current that originates below a productive fishing area off the coast of Mexico and brings water that is high in nutrients and CO2, but low in oxygen and pH, north along the coast.

The Fraser River in the Puget Sound Region has a significant effect on the salinity of surface waters in spring and summer when many marine invertebrates are reproducing. Depending on food availability and physical conditions, planktotrophic larvae remain in the plankton for as little as 14 days to over days.

For the Puget Sound region in general, water quality appeared to be reasonably good; however, there are several specific locations where water quality was reduced, due to low. Interannual comparison of water properties 6 ii.

Abstract: The natural distribution of arsenic in the Puget Sound region is modified by a copper smelter which releases large amounts of arsenic in stack dust to the atmosphere and in liquid effluent directly into Puget Sound.

This airborne material contributes arsenic to lakes and soils up to 50 km downwind, and supplies about the same amount.
