The oceanographic model of Puget Sound and surrounding waters used in this program is being developed by Parker MacCready, Neil Banas, and Dave Sutherland through the MoSSea program (Modeling the Salish Sea), sponsored by UW PRISM. The MoSSea website provides an overview of the model, animations of salinity, temperature, and more from a 2006 hindcast, extensive information on how the model performs relative to data from the many Puget Sound / Salish Sea monitoring programs.
