Feeder Bluff Mapping of Puget Sound

Feeder Bluff Mapping of the Puget Sound

Feeder bluffs create and maintain nearshore habitats by providing sediment input, and their comprehensive mapping is critical to guiding improved shoreline management. CGS compiled and evaluated 26 data sets for potential inclusion into the Puget Sound-wide data sets, equating to more than 1,270 miles of shoreline. CGS completed field mapping of the remainder of the Puget Sound shore in 2012. We also analyzed data at the net shore-drift cell and county scales to further enhance the regional understanding of geomorphic processes and assist with countywide resource management.
