      Since last spring, the U.S. Geological Survey's Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) has detected increasing volcanic unrest at Augustine Volcano in Cook Inlet, Alaska near Anchorage. Based on all available monitoring data, AVO regards that an eruption similar to and is . Apache proposes to conduct a 3D seismic survey in Cook Inlet, Alaska, in an area that encompasses approximately 4, km 2 (1, mi 2) of intertidal and offshore areas (see Figure 2 in Apache's application). Vessels will lay and retrieve nodal sensors on the sea floor in periods of low current, or, in the case of the intertidal area, during.

      Cairn Point is located about two miles north of Anchorage in Knik Arm, in upper Cook Inlet. At Cairn Point, water depths exceed ft, and the flow through Knik Arm is constricted. The constricted flow, along with Cook Inlet’s large twice-daily tidal range, combine to produce high water velocities. Temporal and geographic variation in fish communities of lower Cook Inlet, Alaska. Issue: 97(4) Author(s): Orcinus orca, in Prince William Sound, Alaska. Otolith microstructure, age, and growth patterns of dolphin, Coryphaena hippurus, in the western Mediterranean.

      The Prince William Sound and Kenai Peninsula region includes a significant part of one of the world's largest accretionary complexes and a small part of the classic magmatic arc geology of the Alaska Peninsula. Physiographically, the map area ranges from the high glaciated mountains of the Alaska-Aleutian Range and the Chugach Mountains to the coastal lowlands of Cook Inlet and the Copper.

Cook Inlet in particular is host to the one of the largest tidal ranges in North America as well as a large percentage of the industry and population of Alaska. There are around 10 areas within Cook Inlet that have a combined technical tidal potential of a few hundred megawatts (MW). This would be around half the average load for the entire.

Because the M 2 tidal constituent dominates in most locations, the stage or phase of a tide, denoted by the time in hours after high water, is a useful concept. Tidal stage is also measured in degrees, with ° per tidal cycle.

Lines of constant tidal phase are called cotidal lines, which are analogous to contour lines of constant altitude on topographical maps, and when plotted form a.

A Numerical Tidal Model and its Application to Cook Inlet, Alaska' J. Brian Matthews and Christian H. Mungall Institute of Marine Science Universfry of Alaska. Cook Inlet (Dena'ina: Tikahtnu, Russian: Залив Кука) stretches miles ( km) from the Gulf of Alaska to Anchorage in south-central Alaska.

Cook Inlet branches into the Knik Arm and Turnagain Arm at its northern end, almost surrounding Anchorage. On its south end merges with Shelikof Strait, Stevenson Entrance, Kennedy Entrance and Chugach Passage. important phenomenon in the Cook Inlet. The extensive mud flats are visible from specially-processed satellite images which will be used to validate the model.

In the central portion of Cook Inlet, strong oscillatory tidal currents in channels are often associated with the so-called “rip tides” (Haley et al. ; Okkonen and Howell, ). of Alaska opening and ~ 8–10 m in the northern part of the inlet; see Figures 2 and 5 in Oey et al., ).

In Cook Inlet, the tides are predominantly semidiurnal, with a tidal form factor F = (K1+O1)/(M2+S2) = The large tides produce strong currents and tidal bores (especially in the Turnagain Arm) with speeds of up to 5 m s TheCited by: Tidal Current Predictions.

NOTE: NOAA's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) has created a supplemental tidal current publication for the marine navigation community of Cook Inlet, Alaska for the last quarter of and all of The tidal current predictions in this publication are a reproduction of data that is published in the Tidal Current.

One such place is Cook Inlet (CI), Alaska, a sub-Arctic estuary with extremely large tides of ~10 m range and energetic tidal bores and rip currents (Oey et al.

; Fig. CI is subject to coastal population development (about half of Alaska’s population lives in Anchorage and around Cook Inlet) and sensitive ecosystems which. A new method of integrating satellite remote sensing data and inundation models allows the mapping of extensive tidal mudflats in a sub-Arctic estuary, Cook Inlet (CI), Alaska.

The rapid movement of the shorelines in CI due to the large tides (~10 m range) is detected from a series of Landsat imagery taken at different tidal stages, whereas GIS tools are used to identify the water Cited by: recent study estimated that Alaska had 90% of the tidal power potential in the entire U.S.
