Description This report is a data summary from the Coastal Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) sampling in Washington State, 2000-2003. Coastal EMAP was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to measure the condition of the nation’s coastal waters. The program is a partnership between EPA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the coastal states. Numerous measurements were taken in Puget Sound (including the San Juan Islands) in 2000, intertidal areas in 2002, and offshore areas (continental shelf) in 2003 to assess the physical environment, resident invertebrates and fish, and exposure of those animals to pollutants.
