Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST)Entry ID: POST
Abstract: The Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking (POST) Project's mission is to further understanding of the behaviour of marine animals through the operation of a large-scale ocean telemetry and data management system. POST serves as an accessible research tool for academe, resource agencies and the public. Long-term monitoring of marine animals will contribute to the conservation and stewardship of marine ... resources.
The POST database provides web-based access to data collected through the project. It contains three areas of information:
-Receivers: Locations, serial numbers, and name of line;
-Tags: Identification number, and species and stock of tagged animal; and
-Detections: Location, time, tag detected and detecting receiver
Researchers can download available data or view products based on uploaded data. Uploading is password protected and available to the primary investigator and others who have arranged for access through the POST Secretariat.
