    An airshed is a part of the atmosphere that behaves in a coherent way with respect to the dispersion of typically forms an analytical or management unit. Also: a geographic boundary for air-quality standards. Alternatively - an airshed is a geographical area where local topography and meteorology limit the dispersion of pollutants away from the area.

    WHAT IS PUGET SOUND? (AND THE PUGET LOWLAND, AND THE PUGET SOUND BASIN?) Puget Sound. Edmond Meany () described Puget Sound as "a name much extended beyond its original application." In Captain George Vancouver named the bays and inlets south of present Tacoma and The Narrows after Lieutenant Peter Puget. On March 1, , as the sun sets over the small American military camp of Fort Townsend, a few miles south of Port Townsend at the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula, an unusual group young men assembles at the quarters of Brevet Major Granville O. Haller (), Fourth Infantry, where they share "a very nice oyster supper" (Kennerly journal, March 1, ) and discuss the present.

“The Georgia Basin is an international water body that encompasses the marine waters of Puget Sound, the Strait of Georgia, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The coastal drainage of the Georgia Basin is bounded to the west and south by the Olympic and Vancouver Island mountains and to the north and east by the Cascade and Coast mountains.

Puget Sound/Georgia Basin International Task Force. The Puget Sound/Georgia Basin ecosystem consists of three shallow marine basins: the Strait of Georgia to the north, Puget Sound to the south, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca that connects this inland sea to the Pacific addition to open water, the ecosystem includes islands, shorelines, wetlands, and the watersheds of several mountain.

The transboundary initiatives in Georgia Basin-Puget Sound have encountered the following challenges to realizing their conservation goals: Funding: Inadequate funding has at times constrained the ability of the transboundary efforts to reach their full potential.

Puget Sound. PM concentrations in the Georgia Basin/Puget Sound are usually below national objectives and standards in most regions, with a notable exception in the Puget Sound. Figure shows that Tacoma PM has been exceeding the hour NAAQS of 35 μg/m 3 for the entire period of record. VIEW NOW: This publication is not available on the Ecology website.

Author(s) U.S. / Canada multi-agency representatives: Description: This report examines selective aspects of the state of the environment in the binational transboundary region consisting of the Puget Sound region in the United States and the Georgia Basin in Canada, including the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

We, the NOAA Fisheries, issue a final rule to designate critical habitat for three species of rockfish listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA): the threatened yelloweye rockfish (Sebastes ruberrimus) Distinct Population Segment (DPS), the threatened canary rockfish (S. pinniger) DPS, and the endangered bocaccio (S.

paucispinus) DPS (listed rockfish) pursuant to section 4 of the ESA. This document provides the supporting data for the Population indicator contained in the Georgia Basin-Puget Sound Ecosystem Indicators Report.

It contains data sources, county and BC regional district disaggregated data, references, and US population, census and estimates and projections. The Georgia Basin - Puget Sound Airshed Characterization Report, was undertaken to characterize the air quality within the Georgia Basin/Puget Sound region,a vibrant, rapidly growing, urbanized area of the Pacific Northwest.

The Georgia Basin - Puget Sound Airshed Characterization Report, is an update of the report by the same name and represents a synthesis of air quality work. The weather patterns that create very light winds over the Georgia Basin/Puget Sound are the most important from an air pollution perspective.

An area of high pressure will build over the Pacific Northwest, usually supported by very light air circulation aloft.

The purpose of this report is to identify and analyze the potential economic impacts associated with the designation of critical habitat for the Puget Sound/Georgia Basin Distinct Population Segments of yelloweye rockfish, canary rockfish, and bocaccio under the U.S.

The Georgia Basin - Puget Sound Airshed Characterization Report, was undertaken to characterize the air quality within the Georgia Basin/Puget Sound region, a vibrant, rapidly growing, urbanized area of the Pacific Northwest. Growth within this region continues to put stress on the environment, due to urban sprawl, increasing transportation demands, expansion of ports.

Climate change has large impacts on snowpack (about 50% reduction) but relatively smaller impacts on the total runoff for the basin as a whole.
