    The USGS Puget Sound Ecosystem Portfolio Model (PSEPM) is a decision support tool that uses scenarios to evaluate where, when and to what extent future population growth, urban growth and shoreline development may threaten the nearshore environment by (Byrd et al., ). The tool focuses on threats to barrier and bluff-backed beaches. The highest quality stone for knapping has a satin-like or glossy surface on a flake scar. You may wonder what makes the surface of a stone flake glossy, as opposed to dull and non-reflective. Glossiness is an indication of smoothness of the stone surface at the microscopic level. In particular, Puget Sound already has significant anthropogenic impacts, including issues associated with invasive species, pollutants, and significantly altered freshwater, acid deposition, nutrient run-off, and sediment budgets as a result of the approximately five million people living in the watershed.

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.

The report, “Sediment Quality in Central Puget Sound, Changes Over a Ten-Year Period,” compared sediment samples the state program collected in and to samples it collected in and Ecology’s data and documentation can be found on Ecology’s marine sediment monitoring website.

A survey was designed and conducted to determine the severity, spatial patterns, and spatial extent of degraded sediment quality in Puget Sound (Washington State, USA).

A weight of evidence compiled from results of chemical analyses, toxicity tests, and benthic infaunal analyses was used to classify the quality of sediments.

The sediment on the bottom of a lake exerts an important influence on water quality and aquatic life. For example, sediment may function as a sink and/or a source for nutrients, heavy metals, and other pollutants, and it is home to benthic organisms.

Data from toxicity tests of the pore water extracted from Puget Sound sediments were compiled from surveys conducted from to Tests were performed on samples collected throughout all of the eight monitoring regions in the Sound, an area encompassing 2, km2.

Tests were performed with the gametes of the Pacific purple sea urchin, Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, to Author: Edward R. Long, R. Scott Carr, James M. Biedenbach, Sandra Weakland, Valerie Partridge, Margaret Dut.

Sediment quality guidelines (SQGs) are an important tool for the assessment of contamination in marine and estuarine sediments. Although such guidelines are not definitive indicators of toxicity, they can have a high predictive ability and are a vital tool for identifying areas with potentially adverse biological effects.

In the present study, 15 sets of common SQGs have been compared. Puget Sound Quality Specialists (PSQS) was founded in at the request of local area seafood industry companies who recognized a gap in the market and a need for accurate, timely and independent inspection services. PSQS’s core competencies include independent, 3rd party inspection for quality, food safety, lot inspection and product.
