University of Washington. School of Oceanography. THE PUGET SOUND MODEL. John H. Lincoln. Introduction. Puget Sound is the southern arm of the inland waterway system that also includes the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Strait of Georgia. Puget Sound is a complex estuarine system of four major interconnecting basins, three of which have fjord-like.

      The relatively slow flow and exchange of Carr Inlet water with the main basin of Puget Sound, Washington, favor eutrophication. To study Carr Inlet’s circulation, the Model-measurement Integration Experiment in Estuary Dynamics (MIXED) was conducted in March–May , spanning the spring bloom. From observations and numerical simulations the circulation was decomposed into Cited by: 7. South Puget Sound is the southern reaches of Puget Sound in Southwest Washington, in the United States' Pacific is one of five major basins encompassing the entire Sound, and the shallowest basin, with a mean depth of 37 meters ( ft).

    The 'discovery' of the Salish Sea As marine scientists learned about the integrated marine life of Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the Strait of Georgia, they realized the need for a Author: Bert Webber. The fragility of the Puget Sound lies in the backwaters south of the Narrows known as the South Sound, as well as in the southern reaches of Hood Canal. In these shallow bays, and deep isolated channels, water gets trapped by the oscillating tides. While the currents run fast in some areas, the same water just moves back and forth.

Of the goals of the Southern Puget Sound Water Quality Assessment Study was to compile Circulation and flushing in southern Puget Sound book regarding circulation and flushing to be used to guide decisions on where new or expanded effluent outfalls could be located in Southern Puget Sound.

Kruckeberg is amazingly comprehensive and knowledgeable. The book is superbly illustrated, though in black and white. The writing is by: An Overview of Circulation. in the Puget Sound Estuarine System1 Glenn A. Cannon, ABSTRACT. The estuarine system that comprises Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the southernmost, glacially carved waterways in western North America, is a complex composite of several connecting basins.

Observations of circulation were made at a central location. A prognostic, time-dependent box model of circulation in Puget Sound, Washington is used to study seasonal and interannual variations in residence times and interbasin transports.

The results were used to validate the classic model of Circulation in Embracing Sills for Puget Sound and to provide quantitative estimates of the lateral distribution of tidally averaged transport through the system.

Sensitivity tests with and without exchanges through Johnstone Strait demonstrate that it is a pathway for Georgia Basin runoff and Fraser River water to exit the Salish Sea and for Pacific Ocean by: Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Babson et al. () used a two layer box model to estimate an average flushing time for South Puget Sound at days. A lower flushing time (approximately 20 days) was estimated by Sutherland et al. () who attributed the previous higher number to a lower exchange flow by: 4.

The tide ranges, water depths, and planform areas are typical of those encountered in small-boat marinas in Puget Sound, Washington. This book is better, because I now live in Tacoma and it is true. The rivers, creeks, Puget Sound and streets come alive with new meaning with each page.

I am very-well acquainted with Seattle and north Puget Sound history. This is an excellent historical embellished a bit but true-much of it first-hand account of Tacoma and south Puget Sound/5(16). Circulation in Puget Sound. Puget Sound circulation is driven by tidal currents, the surface outflow of freshwater from Puget Sound rivers, and deep inflow of saltwater from the ocean; and is influenced by wind strength and direction.

Tidal currents dominate the circulation, and typically a two-layered pattern of estuarine circulation is superimposed on the tides.

Complex physical processes such as hydrology, nutrient cycling, and sediment transport are linked to water circulation patterns in Puget Sound. fluxes reach Puget Sound waters through rivers, runoff from watersheds, wastewater treatment outfalls, and are consid-ered a potential pollution threat to Puget Sound water qual-ity and ecological health.

It is the southern end of the larger Puget Sound fjord estuary complex, an area separated from central Puget Sound by a narrow, shallow sill associated with the Tacoma Narrows (Burns ).

With the same ability to make personalities and events come alive that characterizes his classic Skid Road, Murray Morgan here tells the colorful story of southern Puget Sound, where major events of Washington's history took place, and of Tacoma, the area's principal g upon the original journals and reports, Morgan tells his story largely in terms of individual/5.
