Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2794
See the link below for public details on this project.

This study will use innovative technology to measure the winter spatial foraging patterns and net energy gain of adult female elephant seals (and potentially Weddell seals), while simultaneously providing high-resolution data on the physical nature of the water column in which the seals ...
