Oil and gas production, and production potential, in the Cook Inlet Basin area of Alaska extends essentially from Kachemak Bay north to the mouth of the Susitna River. Sixteen dry natural gas fields have been discovered in that area, but only five fields are being actively produced. The Barren Islands, near the entrance to Cook Inlet (Fig. 1), are situated in a transition zone be-tween deep Gulf of Alaska waters and the shallow Cook Inlet estuary. The Alaska Coastal Current en-ters Cook Inlet north of the Barren Islands, leading to intense upwelling of cold, nutrient-rich waters onto.

Protecting Alaska’s Coastal Ecosystems. distinct stocks of beluga whales are found in Alaska, including the most isolated stock—the Cook Inlet beluga. The Cook Inlet is a large glacial fjord in South Central Alaska that spans miles of some of Alaska’s most populated and industrial coastline. The Cook Inlet. Cook Inletkeeper opposes all new oil and gas leasing in Cook Inlet until the state embraces a realistic plan to address rapid climate change in Alaska. supporting local economies. Purchasing local food supports local farms, increases our region’s food security, protects the environment, creates jobs and boosts the local economy. Cook Inletkeeper.

Nearshore and shelf fish communities were studied in three areas of lower Cook Inlet, Alaska: the Barren Islands (oceanic and well-mixed waters), Kachemak Bay (mixed oceanic waters with significant freshwater runoff), and Chisik Island (estuarine waters). Fish were sampled with beach seines (n= sets) and midwater trawls (n=39 sets). We found that lower Cook Inlet supported a diverse.

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.

Cook Inlet in Alaska has been identified as a prime site in the U.S. for potential tidal energy development, because of its enormous tidal power potential that accounts for nearly one-third of the national total.

As one important step to facilitate tidal energy development, a tidal hydrodynamic model based on the unstructured-grid, finite-volume community ocean model (FVCOM) was developed for.
