|Description||Since May 2010, the Department of Ecology has collected continuous, high-frequency, water-surface measurements along a transect crossing the Salish Sea from 47.5° to 48.5 °N.
Measurements are made using oceanographic sensors aboard the Victoria Clipper IV passenger ferry during twice daily runs between Seattle, WA. and Victoria, B.C., Canada. The sensors measure geo-referenced chlorophyll a, turbidity, colored dissolved organic matter, salinity, and temperature. The results are key surface indicators that delineate spatially and temporally varying features such as water masses, river plumes, and algal blooms.
The poster was presented at the Coastal Estuarine and Research Federation (CERF) conference on Nov. 11, 2015, in Portland, Oregon.
