In the past, the Northern Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca regions have accommodated the transportation and refining of petroleum without serious problems from spilled oil. However, proposed activities related to the transport and use of petroleum in these regions increase the chances of significant additions of petroleum to this marine environment. The primary objectives of this study are to: (1) Describe the dispersal patterns of suspended matter emanating from the Fraser and Skagit River by means of careful analysis of LANDSAT imagery; and (2) to develop and evaluate computer algorithms for mapping concentrations of total and inorganic suspended matter from the Fraser and Skagit Rivers.
