Description This poster was presented at the Pacific Estuarine Research Society (PERS) 2012 conference in Anacortes WA., April 12-14, 2012.

The Department of Ecology’s Marine Monitoring Unit conducts a variety of marine observations, including routine long-term marine monitoring in Puget Sound and Washington's coastal estuaries. In 2010, we began using the routine transit leg of our monitoring flight between North Seattle and Olympia to capture aerial observations of surface conditions in Puget Sound at no extra cost. These observations are posted online as the Eyes Over Puget Sound (EOPS) report. EOPS presents multiple scales of observation by combining high-resolution photo observations with satellite images, en-route ferry data between Seattle and Victoria BC, measurements from our moored instruments and water column profiles collected via the floatplane.

The scale, unique perspective and rapid turnaround of EOPS generates a unique synopsis of current Puget Sound conditions that can be used for education, field support, science and public awareness, and ultimately improves our knowledge about our part of the Salish Sea ecosystem.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
