Talk:Puget Sound

I like the addition of "South Sound" and "North... Sound" as subregions. They make sense. I wonder about the name "Northwest Sound" for Whidbey and Camano Islands. I had thought of them as "Northeast", since Admiralty Inlet is the generally accepted north boundary of Puget Sound, and those islands are east of Admiralty Inlet. Looking at a map, however, the islands are pretty much due north of "South Sound". So how about calling the subregion "North Sound"? BTW I haven't heard these as local names for the areas. Of course if there are local names, they probably are best. (WT-en) JimDeLaHunt 13:32, 12 June 2007 (EDT)

I agree. When I was cleaning stuff up, I think I was thinking Northwest of Seattle but North Sound is more practical. (WT-en) Celticevergreen 00:20, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

wow, this is a tough one, I worked on this a little this morning but the region is so huge that it's difficult to get my brain around and it's ripe for misinformationLumpytrout (talk) 14:52, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

NOAA divides PS into five seperate regions 1) North Puget Sound, 2) Main Basin, 3) Whidbey Basin, 4) South Puget Sound, and 5) Hood Canal can we agree to use this since everything else is kind of arbitrary?Lumpytrout (talk) 05:05, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Lumpytrout. That sounds good to me, though I changed the name of "Main Basin" to King County in the breakdown, since that's where the information currently is. I linked North Sound and South Sound, since they were still unlinked for some reason. That leaves Whidbey Basin and Hood Canal, which still need to be created, but I'm a little unsure where the boundaries are, so I'd like to leave it to someone more knowledgeable.
