Coastal Habitats in Puget Sound

Dates 2003-10-01 to 2020-09-30
Description The long-term objective of the Coastal Habitats in Puget Sound Project is to develop scientific information and tools to support natural resource managers in the adaptive management of nearshore habitats of Puget Sound. The information and tools will explain observed ecosystem conditions by relating those conditions to natural and human factors, by defining the causes of spatial and temporal variations, and by providing the basis for predicting the effects of proposed nearshore rehabilitation and preservation.
