Entry ID: NODC_F038

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: Migratory Sea Bird Watch (F038) 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.

Migratory Sea Bird Watch (F038) data type contains data from field
observations of migratory bird species made at fixed offshore
positions. These data are collected to provide information about
migratory routes and breeding locales of principal marine bird
species. Position, date, start and end times, elapsed time, distance
from shore, platform type, counting method and sampling technique are
reported for each series of observations. Environmental information
may include meteorological and sea surface conditions, ice cover, and
tide height and trend. Species information may include age, sex,
color, plumage, molt, behavior, number of individuals and number of
species. These data were collected in 1977 - 1978 for coastal Alaska.
