    South Puget Sound is a land of gentle terrain and shallow inlets. Hood Canal, on the other hand, is steep and deep: steep mountains above, deep waters below. It’s a genuine glacier-carved fjord, the only one in the continental United States. The Puget Lowland is subject to seismic shaking from great megathrust subduction earthquakes, most recently in A.D.

    Flooding may occur as an overflow of water from water bodies, such as a river, lake, or ocean, in which the water overtops or breaks levees, resulting in some of that water escaping its usual boundaries, or it may occur due to an accumulation of rainwater on saturated ground in an areal flood. Part or all of this report is presented in Portable Document Format (PDF); the latest version of Adobe Reader or similar software is required to view it.

    Glacial Lake Carbon was a lake created by the Puget Lobe damming the Carbon River. Around 16, BP when the glacier began retreating, the ice dam holding back the lake became breached causing a major glacial outburst flood. The flood covered present day central and northern Thurston County, Continent: North America. before and after (scroll right for the present) Click on image to download it.

Western Washington is hilly and even mountainous in places with lots of rivers and lakes. This includes the three lakes that dictate the geography of the greater Seattle metropolitan area: Lakes Union, Washington and Sammamish.
