A pod of Orcas follows the edge of the plume heading north.
Red-brown algae blooms continue in Henderson, Eld, and northern Budd Inlets.
Long organic debris lines are numerous in northern Budd Inlet, Hood Canal, and in Central Sound north of Edmonds (Triple Junction).
Conditions in the water column in Puget Sound continue to normalize after seven months of lower oxygen. Water is very clear for this time of the year, particularly in the north.
All this and more in the November 21 “Eyes Over Puget Sound.”
“Eyes Over Puget Sound” combines high-resolution photo observations with satellite images, en route ferry data between Seattle and Victoria BC, and measurements from our moored instruments.
