Washington

Washington's Puget Sound is a complex ecosystem directly adjacent to a robust metropolitan area that scientists from the USGS Western Fisheries Research Center study. Recent surveys have looked at juvenile surf smelt, a key link in the food web that are consumed by predators such as salmon, orca, and many marine birds.

Tracking the advance of Crater Glacier at Mount St. Helens, WA

Information regarding volume and rates of advance for the crevassed Crater Glacier at Mount St. Helens, Washington, are extracted from Digital Elevation Models created from aerial photography. The red line shows the extent of Crater Glacier in 2012. Since 2012, the glacier has advanced about 50 m (160 ft) down the Loowit channel.
