Eyes Over Puget Sound

During spring to fall, we take to the air to obtain aerial photo observations to allow us to document the scale of water quality issues and give you a different vantage point of the challenges, but also the beauty, of our marine waters. Eyes Over Puget Sound, or EOPS, takes your voluntary contributions and our observations from a different vantage point to provide a visual picture of the current conditions of Puget Sound.

Eyes Over Puget Sound empowers you to:

  • See what is currently happening in Puget Sound.
  • Use Eyes Over Puget Sound as free educational material!
  • Learn more about Eyes Over Puget Sound.

Eyes Over Puget Sound

In September, we observed algae blooms, macroalgae, and sediment-rich river plumes from our Sept. 13, 2023, seaplane flight.

We also used a drone to document macroalgae and internal waves around Dash Point and Commencement Bay on Aug. 28, 2023.
