Marine Birds from Coastal Alaska and Puget Sound Data (1974-1982): Feeding Flock (F037)
Entry ID: NODC_F037

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: Feeding Flock (F037) is one of a group of seven datasets related to
Marine Birds from Coastal Alaska and Puget Sound Data (1974-1982).
Each dataset uses the NODC Taxonomic Code to indicate species.

Feeding Flock (F037) data type contains data from field observations
of marine bird feeding flocks made during air or ship surveys. These
data are collected to provide information on marine bird feeding
dynamics, community structure, and trophic relationships. Start and
end positions, date and elapsed time, course, speed, distance,
altitude, platform type and observing techniques are reported for each
survey. Environmental information may include meteorological and sea
surface conditions, distances to the shoreline and shelf break, ice
characteristics, and surface debris, including oil slicks. Flock
information may include flock height and dimensions, number of
species, number of individuals per species, distance to land, species
and number of associated marine mammals, flock behavior, interaction
with other species, and arrival/departure activities. These data were
collected in 1975 - 1976 for coastal Alaska.
