Physical, chemical and biological data from the NOAA Marine EcoSystems Analysis Program (MESA) Puget Sound project from 1965 through 1986

browse graphicPreview graphic
This collection consists of physical, chemical, meteorological, and biological data collected in Puget Sound, Washington, between 1965 and 1986. These data were collected from numerous platforms including ships, boats, aircraft, fixed stations and buoys, as well as by direct human observation and collection. These data were collected by numerous organizations in support of the NOAA Marine EcoSystems Analysis Program (MESA) Puget Sound project.
