Lineage The data series has been compiled from all Argos location fixes (quality B,A,0,1,2,3) from Platform Terminal Transmitters (PTTs) deployed on 4 adult male South American Fur Seals (Otaria flavescens). PTTs were attached using standard techniques (epoxy). PTT models used were Wildlife Computers SPLASH10-F-351B. Trackers were deployed for periods between 1-6 months, for multiple trips. Details of each deployment made (e.g. rookery location, sex, length, girth, deployment dates etc.) can be found by cross-referencing the Unique ID number assigned to each bird with that in the data sheet catalogued as FK-SAERI-207 in the IMS-GIS metadata catalogue.
