|Description||A revised Quality Assurance Monitoring Plan (QAMP) has been developed for the Puget Sound Sediment Monitoring Program, updating versions published in 1988, 1998, and 2009. The Department of Ecology’s Marine Sediment Monitoring Team has conducted sediment quality monitoring in Puget Sound since 1989, as part of the Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Program. This QAMP describes the expanded goals and objectives, revised study design, and all methods for revised sediment monitoring in Puget Sound. Expanding beyond the toxics-related focus, benthos biomass and ecological function – along with a suite of biogeochemical parameters measuring carbon and nitrogen and their stable isotopes, total sulfides, and biogenic silica – have been added to help us better understand the effects of nutrient input and climate change on Puget Sound benthos.
