Alaska Northern Fur Seal Foraging Habitat Model Stable Isotope Data, 2006-2008

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

These data sets were used by Zeppelin et al. (2015) to model northern fur seal foraging habitats based on stable isotope values measured in plasma and red blood cells, and satellite-linked tag measures of locations and diving behavior. Foraging habitat models were developed using blood isotope samples collected from 35 adult female fur seals on three breeding colonies in Alaska during July-October 2006. Satellite location and dive data were used to define habitat use in terms of the proportion of time spent or dives made in different oceanographic/bathymetric domains. Stable isotope samples, dive data, and GPS location data collected from 15 females during August-October 2008 validated model use across years.
