Detailed information on 196 grid sites used for snow petrel surveys in the Windmill Islands during the 2002/2003 season
Entry ID: SNOWPETRELSURVEYSCASEY0203


Summary
Abstract: Very little information is known about the distribution and abundance of snow petrels at the regional scale. This dataset contains locations of grid sites used to survey for snow petrels in the Windmill Islands during the 2002-2003 season. Descriptive information relating to each grid site was recorded and a detailed description of data fields is provided in the attached dataset.

Survey methodology used 200*200 m grid squares in which exhaustive searches were conducted (FO). Search effort for these is provided in the dataset.

The fields in this dataset are:

Quality Data were acquired with a Garmin 26 GPS receiver, the accuracy of which is better than an average handheld GPS model, such as the Garmin 12. In order not to overestimate the quality of the data, it is sensible to assume that nest locations were acquired with an uncertainty between 5 and 10 m.
