Description The Washington State Department of Ecology conducts a long-term Marine Sediment mMonitoring Task in Puget Sound as part of the Puget Sound Ambient Monitoring Program in conjunction with the Puget Sound Water Quality Authority. This report presents sediment data from samples collected in the spring of 1992 at 48 locations (stations) throughout Puget Sound. Components of this project include annual monitoring of 178 physical and chemical sediment parameters, sediment toxicity testing (amphipod bioassay), and the enumeration and identification (generally to species level) of the benthic infaunal community.
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.
