Effects of Development on Coho Salmon and Implications for Stream Habitat Restoration
(University of Washington Water Center, 2009-03-31)
Examination of a 20-year record of spawning coho salmon abundance from more than 80 streams in central Puget Sound indicated that even modest levels of development within a watershed were associated with reductions is salmon abundance. The fact that current zoning in this region directs nearly all future development into areas ...
Planning and Management of Forested Agricultural Riparian Buffers: the Case of the Skagit County Managed Agricultural Riparian Plantations (MARP)
(University of Washington Water Center, 2006-10-03)
Riparian forests are part of a complex and interconnected ecosystem that extends from the headwaters to the estuaries. This presentation describes elements of silvicultural systems for riparian buffers on agricultural lands in large floodplains of Northwestern Washington State. Riparian buffers protect and enhance aquatic ...
Stormwater and Salmon: Assessing the Ecological Impacts of Non-Point Source Pollution
(University of Washington Water Center, 2006-04-11)
Scholz will discuss one of the major threats to our oceans: non-point source pollution. He will discuss the effects of non-point source pollution on Pacific salmon.
Strategic Planning for Water Rights Acquisitions in the Columbia Basin: an Assessment of Regional Streamflow Response to Climate Change
(University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-17)
The Columbia River Basin provides numerous water-ecosystem services through its natural flow regime. Wildlife in the basin, including salmon, are evolutionarily adapted to changes in the seasonality of the riverâ€™s flow. The quality, quantity and timing of flow directly influence the productivity and resilience of salmon ...
Spices in Puget Sound and in Seattle's Sewage Effluent
(University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
Keil will describe his research measuring spices in Puget Sound. Puget Sound sees seasonal inputs of specific spices, such as vanilla, cinnamon, and thyme. Essentially, what we eat winds up in Puget Sound. Spices can be smelled by salmon and are present at concentrations higher than the 'natural' compounds flavoring the Sound.
Recolonization of the Cedar River, Washington, by Anadromous Fish: Build It and They Will Come
(University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
Kiffney will discuss the dispersal, colonization patterns, and reproductive success of anadromous fish in native habitats. He will review the ecological effects of anadromous fish on populations, communities, and ecosystems. Finally, he will consider whethre providing fish passage establishes a sustainable anadromous fish ...

Climate Change in the Puget Sound: Will it Impact the Region's Water Resources?
(University of Washington Water Center, 2007-05-08)
Palmer will discuss the impact of climate change on water resources. He will frame the problem in context and present an overview of climate change: global and regional. He will outline the hydrologic impacts of climate change. Next, he will examine the regional water supply. He will address impacts on salmon recovery, and ...
