    The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. The river is 1, miles (2, km) long, and Mouth: Pacific Ocean, at Clatsop County, Oregon . Pineapple Express is a non-technical term for a meteorological phenomenon characterized by a strong and persistent flow of moisture and associated with heavy precipitation from the waters adjacent to the Hawaiian Islands and extending to any location along the Pacific coast of North America. A Pineapple Express is an example of an atmospheric river, which is a more general term for such narrow.

    A substantial portion of the United States has class 3 or higher wind resource in spring and winter, whereas a considerably smaller portion has class 3 and above wind resource in summer. The distribution of wind resource throughout the United States in winter, spring, summer, and autumn is described more completely in the following four sections. The Strait of Juan de Fuca is the wide waterway stretching from the Pacific Ocean on the west to the San Juan Islands on the east, with Vancouver Island to the north and the Olympic Peninsula to the south. The Strait of Georgia lies north of the San Juans. Puget Sound is the narrower waters south of the Strait of Basin countries: Canada, United States.

    A model of global wind patterns that depicts three convection cells in each hemisphere, bordered by alternating bands of high and low pressure Coriolis effect Causes moving air and water to turn left in the southern hemisphere and turn right in the northern hemisphere due to Earth's hemisphere. STEP 1: Students collect temperature and wind data at four times during the day from an inland location. STEP 2: Students collect temperature and wind data at four times during the day from an ocean buoy. STEP 3: Students observe the change in wind patterns over the course of the day. Students print their data table to help them answer the conclusion questions.

REGIONAL WIND PATTERNS OF THE INLAND WATERS OF WESTERN WASHINGTON AND SOUTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA l Sally Ann Schoenberg2 ABSTRACT.

This study generalizes a time series of regional wind fields in an area of strong topographic influence. Wind speed and direction measured by 6 meteorological buoys and 1 tower. Regional wind patterns of the inland waters of western Washington and southern British Columbia Author: Sally A Schoenberg ; Environmental Research Laboratories (U.S.).

Regional wind patterns of the inland waters of western Washington and southern British Columbia. strong winds to the lowlands of Western Washington and second, a pattern that brings strong easterly winds to the Cascade foothills.

The Western Washington Lowland Wind Pattern The photo above illustrates a storm moving from the Pacific Ocean in a northeasterly direction across the tip of Washington and into southern British Columbia, Canada.

The Cascade Mountains, 90 to miles inland and 4, to 10, feet in elevation, are a topographic and climatic barrier separating the state into eastern and western Washington. The higher, wider and more rugged sections are in the northern part of the state.

The term Chinook wind is also used in British Columbia, and is the original usage, being rooted in the lore of coastal tribes and brought to Alberta by the fur-traders. Such winds are extremely wet and warm and arrive off the western coast of North America from the southwest.

On the east, Washington is bordered by Idaho and on the west; it is bordered by the Pacific Ocean. The terrain and climate of Washington divide the state into a rainy western third and a drier eastern two-thirds in the rain shadow of the Cascade Range.

Major rivers in the state include the Columbia, the Snake and the Yakima Rivers. Within the inland waters of Washington State and southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, mammal- eating Bigg’s (transient) killer whales occur in relatively small, but stable social groups.

Abstract: The purpose of this report is to synthesize information about the geomorphology and dynamics of Puget Sound's beaches.

It summarizes important peer-reviewed literature relevant to these beach environments and assemblies background information that. Thus, the west European type of climate has developed over north-western Europe (including Great Britain, western Norway, Denmark, northwest Germany, Neth­erlands, Belgium, Luxemberg, and north-western France), British Columbia of Canada, Washington and Oregon states of the USA, south-west coast of Chile (S.

Monsoon Winds. Monsoons are regional scale wind systems that predictably change direction with the passing of the seasons. Like land/sea breezes, these wind systems are created by the temperature contrasts that exist between the surfaces of land and ocean.

of the Olympic Mountains. Over the inland waters, the winds flow from high to low sea-level pressure in the direction of the local channels. Recent studies by the University of Washington and PMEL on the Puget Sound convergence zone, sea and valley breeze, precipitation patterns and local wind patterns are summarized.

The storm which. The Western Australian coastline stretches from the tropics to the Southern Ocean, and there is accordingly a pronounced change in the seasonal wind patterns from north to south.

The proposed country or region largely would consist of the Canadian province of British Columbia and the US States of Washington and Oregon. Including all parts of the bioregion, Cascadia would stretch from coastal Alaska in the north into Northern California in the south, and inland to include parts of Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming Capital: Undecided (likely Vancouver, Seattle, or Portland).

Wolf Read, PhD Contact information is in the graphic at the bottom of the page. In the Pacific Northwest, we are collaborating with climate researchers at the University of Washington’s Climate Impacts Group (CIG), the U.S.

Geological Survey, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and many others to develop an understanding of climate change effects in the Pacific Northwest, and how to manage fish and wildlife resources in light of these effects.This morning, the front page of the national newspaper reads "BC put on alert for huge quake." Yet again.

So do I hop on a plane to Calgary or continue obliviously sipping my coffee? The reality of an eventual massive earthquake on the British Columbian coast is a given. As my mom, discontent with raging snowstorms and oC temperatures, declares, "there are consequences to living in paradise.".The Pacific Northwest (PNW), sometimes referred to as Cascadia, is a geographic region in western North America bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west and (loosely) by the Rocky Mountains on the east.

Though no official boundary exists, the most common conception includes the Canadian province of British Columbia (BC) and the U.S. states of Idaho, Oregon, and ition: British Columbia, Idaho, Oregon.
