Description This publication is the archived storyboard for “A Conceptual Model for Puget Sound Sediments” story map, an on-line interactive report created by Ecology’s Marine Sediment Monitoring Team: storymaps.arcgis.com/collections/aaec1a6656ff43e098d209c75ce00244?item=2).

The story map is part of the team’s new Sediment Quality in Puget Sound story map collection. It provides a graphic visualization of the Driver-Pressure-State-Impact-Response (DPSIR) conceptual model adopted for Ecology’s Puget Sound Sediment Monitoring Program. This DPSIR model depicts scenarios where natural and human forces result in changes in climate and weather conditions, carbon and nutrient input, and toxic loading to the Puget Sound ecosystem, bringing about changes in the state of the water column and pelagic assemblages which ultimately influence the state of the sediments, porewater and bottom-dwelling invertebrates. The storyboard was created for archival purposes only.
