    Interpretive Properties o Erodibility is closely related to slope, vegetative cover, water concentration and numerous other factors in addition to geologic characteristics. o Excavation difficulty is discussed in more detail in handbooks published by Caterpillar, Inc. (a, b). By the end of , the last of Denny Hill will have disappeared beneath the waters of Puget Sound. The land here was far from attractive from the agricultural standpoint, for it was rough and hilly, and covered with a dense growth of fir trees.

    In Puget Sound the estuarine circulation turns out to be very large, and exerts a profound influence on water properties. Circulation The strength of the estuarine circulation at Admiralty Inlet is estimated to be 20,, m3 s-1, or about times the total of all the rivers entering the Sound. The Puget Sound Fact Book brings together statistics and other information about the health and makeup of the Puget Sound ecosystem. Areas of focus include climate change, geography, water quality, habitats, human dimensions and regional species. The fact book was prepared for the Encyclopedia of Puget Sound with funding from the.

    I have been frustrated by the porosity of our post-glacial soils here in Puget Sound. A few hundred miles south, clay. Here sandy, gravelly, loamy silty, but only rare pockets of clay at the surface. Makes me want to get a soil map and find a clay mine! This leaves liners, bentonite or mass hauling of clay soils. All are expensive and fickle. The glacial bluffs bordering Puget Sound within the city of Seattle have long been recognized as susceptible to shallow landslides that often transform into debris flows triggered by periods of intense rainfall or rapid snowmelt. Debris flows have caused significant damage to people and property in Seattle and will continue to do so in the future.

Study of the fundamental properties of Puget Sound glacial clays by E. C. Subbarao Download PDF EPUB FB2

Clay are part of a sequence of Pleistocene glacial deposits in the Puget Sound Basin. Deposits in this sequence are often overconsolidated, have a wide range of hydraulic conductivities, are laterally hetero­ geneous, and form steep, landslide-prone coastal bluffs.

A generalized section showing Seattle-area glacial deposits is shown in Figure by: Page 76 - Blaine and Sumas quadrangles of the US Geological Survey, and its topography is almost entirely determined by ground moraine and by the post-glacial alluvial deposits of the Nooksak River.

A few areas exist where the glacial till has been left in true frontal moraine ridges, among the first to be built in the retreat of the Puget.

Puget Sound Basin. is the area that drains into Puget Sound. The Puget Sound Basin is more extensive than the Puget Lowland, as it includes extensive portions of the Cascade Range and the Olympic Mountains.

Some Comments. Despite KPLU, real Washingtonians never speak of the Puget Sound. In the Puget Sound lowlands glacial deposits from the last Pleistocene glaciation (12, to 15, years ago) are the major parent material.

Included in these deposits are dense glacial till (hardpan), glacial outwash (clean sands and gravels) and glacial lake sediments (silts and clays). As the Puget Lobe advanced, it deposited hundreds of feet of Lawton Clay, Esperance Sand, and Vashon Till.

Meltwater flowing below the ice carved out troughs that we know as valleys. Many of the area's water bodies fill these troughs, including Puget Sound, Lake Washington, Lake Union, Lake Tapps, and Lake Sammamish. The Puget Sound is part of the larger geologic province of the Puget Lowland.

Both were sculpted by the thick and extensive glaciers that advanced south to just beyond Olympia. Glacial till (sediment deposited directly by the ice) and outwash (sediment deposited by meltwater in front of the glacier) make up most of what is found at or near the.

Eventually, nearly all of the cities and counties bordering Puget Sound have incorporated some form of geotechnical/geologic study requirements for potential landslide areas.

From untilwhen geologists gained licensure in Washington, all geotechnical studies for building in a landslide were required to be stamped by a professional. Most beach sediments in Puget Sound are derived from these glacial deposits and include a heterogeneous mix of clay, silt, sand, and gravel; bluff erosion is the dominant mechanism that supplies.

The outwash was deposited during ice retreat of the Cordilleran. The majority of the late glacial marine clays in Norway have been subjected to a leaching by fresh water due to a land elevation, resulting in a reduced salt concentration in the pore water.

The effect of the leaching is an essential change in the fundamental properties of the clays. Puget Sound Business Journal's Book of Lists provides you with more than 1, of the hottest area companies in their fields, by ranking.

Its southern boundary is defined by the extent of Pleistocene glaciation, which is approximately at the boundary between the Puget Sound and Chehalis River drainage basins near Tenino, Washington (Vaccaro et al., ).

Puget Sound glacier. Beyond the southern portion of the Puget Sound depression is an abrupt transition in the topography. Rock hills of pre- glacial sculpture, lying beyond the limit of glaciation, begin here and continue southward past the Columbia.
