Poster on acoustic monitoring of beluga whales in the coastal portion of the Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson along Knik Arm, in the upper Cook Inlet.

Due to the endangered status of Cook Inlet belugas (Delphinapterus leucas), there is a requirement to monitor their presence in the coastal portion of the Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson (U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force) Knik Arm, upper Cook Inlet. In particular, due to proposed live firing into the Eagle River flats impact area both the Eagle River and Eagle Bay are areas of conservation concern for the military.
