Nearshore Summit and Synthesis

Overview | Storymap | Video

The goals of this virtual summit were to synthesize nearshore science and restoration actions in Puget Sound and create a roadmap that updates restoration conceptual models and identifies uncertainties to address.


Fundamental Environmental Contextual Metrics Dashboard

Dashboard | Overview | Video

This project uses data from oceanographic and atmospheric measurement programs to develop six fundamental environmental metrics and compare current status to historical values. The metrics are available on a web-based dashboard.


PUGET SOUND MARINE WATERS 2020 OVERVIEW

Report | Video

The Puget Sound Marine Waters Overview report, prepared by the Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Program’s Marine Waters Work Group, provides a comprehensive overview of marine conditions in 2020.


Avian Habitat Suitability Models for Puget Sound Estuary Birds

Overview | Storymap | Video

Puget Sound and the Salish Sea support significant concentrations of shorebirds, waterfowl, and other marine bird species. This project develops science products that support the management needs of estuary birds.


Prioritization of Contaminants of Emerging Concern

Report | Video

This project prioritizes contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) for monitoring efforts and management responses. Hundreds of CECs such as pharmaceuticals, plasticizers, and pesticides have been found in Puget Sound.


Juvenile Salmonid Monitoring in Large Puget Sound Rivers

Report | Overview | Video

Juvenile salmonid monitoring is a key part of understanding freshwater productivity and marine survival of Chinook salmon. For this project, tribal and state smolt trap operators helped identify trends in Chinook salmon abundance and productivity across multiple rivers in Puget Sound.


Birds Vital Sign, Abundance of marine and terrestrial birds indicator

View

This project includes processing annual mid-winter WDFW PSAMP seabird and waterfowl survey flight data; marine and terrestrial bird indicator updates; winter birds web map; Pigeon Guillemot citizen science data gathering, storage and summary tools.


Drinking Water Vital Sign indicator

View

This project includes a model for index of vulnerability to nitrates in groundwater and the first Vital Sign indicator report for the vulnerability index indicator.


Economic Vitality Vital Sign indicators

View

This project includes data compilation and analysis, annual update for three economic indicators in 2022, and Vital Sign key messages.


Outdoor Activities Vital Sign, Condition of swimming beaches indicator

View

This project included monitoring, data compilation, analyses, and reporting at Puget Sound marine beaches for fecal indicator bacteria, and communication to the public when a risk of disease was identified.


Shoreline Armor Vital Sign, indicator of new and removed armor

View

This project included HPA-based data compilation; Vital Sign indicator reporting for 2019 and 2020; and a Vital Sign decadal summary report and final data product.


Subjective human wellbeing indicators

View

This project included a second survey and report in support of the subjective human wellbeing indicators. Reported on Cultural Wellbeing, Good Governance, Sense of Place, Sound Stewardship, Local Foods and Outdoor Activity Vital Signs.


Toxics in Fish Vital Sign, Contaminants in juvenile salmon indicator

View

This project assessed compatibility of historical data and assessed time trends. The project included an indicator update for contaminants in juvenile salmon and a draft manuscript and communication product.


2019 Recommendations for a Puget Sound Estuary Avian Monitoring Strategy

View

The PSEMP Marine Birds Work Group convened a wide cross-section of bird monitoring groups to develop a common framework for monitoring birds.


2018 SALISH SEA TOXICS MONITORING SYNTHESIS

View

A 2019 report from the Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Program presents an overview of selected recent monitoring and research activities focused on toxic contaminants in the Salish Sea.


Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Strategic Plan

View

This plan includes a goal for PSEMP to convene subject matter experts to communicate scientific information from different parts of the ecosystem to address key management and science questions for recovery of the ecosystem.


Shoreline Monitoring Toolbox

View

This toolbox emphasizes methods that are simple and affordable, and that can be used for monitoring.
