Data Supporting Studies of Brant and Other Waterfowl Natural Behaviors at Izembek Lagoon, Alaska, 1985-1988

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This data package presents legacy data collected during 1985-1988 at Izembek Lagoon on the western end of the Alaska Peninsula. The data were collected in support of a multi-year study focused on aircraft disturbance of waterfowl, particularly Black Brant, Emperor Geese, and Cackling Geese. The study was conducted at Izembek Lagoon and included several study sites within the lagoon: Halfway Point, Grant Point, Outer Marker, Quarter Point, Applegate Cove, Norma Bay, Round Island, and Banding Island. The primary objectives were to 1) determine the proportion of time brant spent foraging, resting, and in flight during natural environmental conditions. The raw data are provided in a .CSV format, however, PDF digital scans of original field data sheets, tables, figures, and maps are also available upon request.
