Kauai' Field Work Updates

Posted on February 16, 2024

Scientists from Cascadia Research Collective are leading a ~9-day field project off Kaua’i that started on February 11th. This project is timed to occur prior to a Submarine Command Course (SCC) training event. The primary goal is to deploy satellite telemetry tags on multiple species of odontocete cetaceans prior to the SCC, to be able to examine their behavior before, during, and after the event. This approach has been very successful in the past as a way of examining how different species respond to Navy training activities including mid-frequency active sonar (MFAS). Daily updates are being posted at and also check out the CRC Facebook page.
