Weddell Seal Population Dynamics in Erebus Bay
Entry ID: Erebus_Bay_Weddell_Seals

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Weddell seal population in Erebus Bay within eastern McMurdo Sound,
Antarctica has been studied since 1968. Large numbers of seals have been
individually tagged in Erebus Bay each year since the study was initiated. In
addition, during multiple surveys that have been conducted each year,
resightings of tagged animals and observations of untagged animals have been
recorded. Observations are linked in the database to locations within Erebus
Bay. From 1968-2002, a total of 16,809 animals have been tagged with 161,994
resighting records logged in the current database.
