Whidbey Island video camera 1 bright image

Detailed Description

Video cameras overlook the coast along a beach on Whidbey Island, Island County at the northern boundary of Puget Sound in western Washington. Today’s most recent image from camera 1 is shown here.  Every half hour during daylight hours, the camera shoots video for 10 minutes. This bright image shows the brightest pixel values throughout the video, useful for identifying the position of maximum wave run-up on the beach, position of all breaking waves, and sea-state.
