These water-level data were collected in support of Puget Sound - Coastal Storm Modeling System (PS-CoSMoS), a numerical modeling system to predict coastal flooding and coastal change impacts associated with sea-level rise, storms, and river flooding driven by change in climate and land use. In part, the observations are used to calibrate and validate water levels simulated by PS-CoSMoS.
