Summary

The population of beluga whales in Cook Inlet, Alaska, is in decline. and since 2000 these whales have been under consideration for designation as "endangered" under the Endangered Species Act (and were placed on the list in October 2008, Just betore this article went to press). In order to study environmental and hydrodynamic impacts on the belugas movements and survival in the unique habitat of the inlet, a three-dimensional ocean circulation and inundation model is cumbined with satellite-tracked belaga whale data Model-whale data comparisons from two whale paths during a nve-day period (September 17-21,2000) covering 10 tidal cycles suggest that daily movements of belugas in the upper Cook Inlet follow propagation of the tides.
