Autonomous Pinniped Environmental Samplers: Using Instrumented Animals as Oceanographic Data Collectors

Submitted by Archiver on Fri, 12/10/2018 - 11:32

Data-recording tags applied to marine animals store data for later retrieval and can return valuable information on animal behavior and ecology, including habitat preference, physiology, and movement patterns, as well as environmental data. If properly instrumented, calibrated, and archived, data from these tags can add to the oceanographic datastream for parts of the ocean where data are sparse or lacking.
