Computer models in the Salish Sea
About the series
It’s hard to overstate the importance of mathematical models to science. Models show how planets move and how diseases spread. They track the paths of hurricanes and the future of climate change. Models allow scientists to look at systems or scenarios that they could never view otherwise. Increasingly, they are also helping scientists understand the Salish Sea. In this seven-part series, Christopher Dunagan reports on how computer models are changing the way we study the ecosystem.
The project is jointly sponsored by King County and the Puget Sound Institute, with additional support from the Environmental Protection Agency.
