Distribution of foraging effort of Antarctic fur seals in relation to oceanographic features around Heard and Kerguelen IslandsEntry ID: ASAC_1251
Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 1251
See the link below for public details on this project.
---- Public Summary from Project ----
The aim of this study is to develop spatial GIS models of fur seal foraging density over the Kerguelen Plateau that will enable a rapid assessment method for identifying areas of high conservation value for Marine Protected Area planning and management. These models will be based on data on fur seal foraging densities in the HIMI region, and oceanographic data on bathymetry, sea-surface temperature and ocean colour (primary productivity).
Data from this project have been archived in the ARGOS satellite tracking database.
