Welcome to the Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Program

The Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Program is a collaboration of state, federal, tribal and local government agencies, non-governmental organizations, watershed groups, business, academic researchers, local integrating organizations, and other private and volunteer groups and organizations - all dedicated to monitoring environmental conditions in Puget Sound.  The objective of PSEMP is to create and support a collaborative, inclusive, and transparent approach to regional monitoring and assessment that builds upon and facilitates communication among the many monitoring programs and efforts operating in Puget Sound. PSEMP’s fundamental goal is to assess progress toward the recovery of the health of Puget Sound. (see About Us)

  • Modeling Meets Monitoring On July 17, 2018, the PSEMP Marine Waters and Modeling Workgroups convened for a day of presentations and energetic discussion between modelers and empiricists working to better understand geophysical, hydrodynamic, and ecosystem dynamics at play in Puget Sound, and how we can use models and data to learn from and improve approaches to recovery. With 36 participants in person who stayed all day, and 10 more on the phone, the room was fuller than expected for a midsummer meeting, and conversations indicated there was a healthy appetite for follow up and more opportunities to bring together slices of the modeling and monitoring communities. You can read the meeting summary and see the presentations from the modeling groups here! Many thanks ...
