Figure Sea-level pressure analysis for a gap wind event in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Flow accelerates along the strait, and there is an abrupt transition in wind speed and direction beyond the exit of the strait. Small wind arrows are from aircraftderived estimates; large wind arrows are coastal stations (after Overland and Walter, ). Numerical models of ocean dynamics are becoming increasingly sophisticated and are now used to forecast future ocean states. The forecasts vary in geographic scale from local embayments to the global ocean, and on temporal scales, from one day to several years.

Seals from Gertrude Island (Strait of Juan de Fuca), Puget Sound, were approximately twice as contaminated as their counterparts in the Georgia Basin, indicating that they are exposed to higher levels of PBDEs in their diet.

Puget Sound is a fjord-type estuary in Washington State, USA. The average water depth of Puget Sound is ∼62 m, but depths approach ∼ m in the Main Basin. It is connected to the Pacific Ocean by the Strait of Juan de Fuca, a turbulent passage ∼ km long (Thomson, ).

The geography of Puget Sound is complex and includes three main. This regional model would then be used to formulate the open boundary conditions for models of individual estuaries or related groups of them.

Examples of river-estuary systems suitable for regional models would be the Rotterdam Waterway and the Puget Sound/Strait of Juan de Fuca/Straits of Georgia complex. The Salish Sea extends from the north end of the Strait of Georgia and Desolation Sound to the south end of the Puget Sound and west to the mouth of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
