Aerial surveys to monitor marine mammals and sea turtles (MM/ST) were conducted in conjunction with two training events during the period February 16 to March 5, 2011. more

Including: (a) U.S. Navy Submarine Commander’s Course (SCC) naval training event in the Hawaii Range Complex (HRC) on the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) instrumented range between Kauai and Niihau, Hawaii; and (b) Undersea Warfare Exercise (USWEX) training event south of Oahu and Molokai. Surveys in support of the SCC event occurred on 4 consecutive days from February 16 to 19, 2011, in waters adjoining Kauai and Niihau where the missile destroyer (DDG) and other ships were operating, followed by shoreline surveys of Kauai and Niihau on 2 separate days thereafter: February 24 and 26, 2011. This was followed by shoreline surveys of the Four Islands region in support of the USWEX event on 2 separate days, February 28 and March 5, 2011.
