Data Identification
Abstract: Satellite tagging was implemented in 2013. Satellite tagging is conducted using a Dan Inject air rifle and deployment arrows designed by Wildlife Computers. Two types of tags are deployed. One type is a Wildlife Computers SPOT5-240C tag that collects location and temperature. The other tag type is the Wildlife Computers SPLASH10-292B, which provides location as well as depth, temperature, and light level.
Purpose: Satellite tagging is used to study the movements and habitat use of individuals. Additionally, SPLASH10 tags provide information on the dive behavior of individuals.

Scope: Dataset
Lineage: Argos transmitters upload short duration messages (of less than one second) to Argos instruments on satellites that pass overhead at an altitude of 850 km. Each platform is characterized by an identification number specific to its transmitter. A platform transmits periodic messages characterized by the following parameters : Transmission Frequency (401.650 MHz Âą 30 kHz, which must be stable as the location is computed on the basis of Doppler effect measurements, the Repetition period, which is the interval of time between two consecutive message dispatches, varying between 15 and 90 seconds according to the extent to which the platform is used, the platform identification number, and the volume of data collected. The transmission of each message takes less than one second. The three main receiving stations, Wallops Island and Fairbanks in the United States and Svalbard in Norway, collect all the messages recorded by the satellites during an orbit, thus providing coverage of the entire Earth. Data received by the satellites are retransmitted to regional stations in real time if the station is within satellite visibility. The main receiving stations also receive data in real time. There are two global Argos processing centers, one located just outside of Toulouse in Southwestern France, and the other near Washington, DC, USA. Once the data arrive at a processing center, locations are automatically calculated and information made available to users. In the two processing centers, designed for full redundancy, the computers calculate locations and process the received data. The following processing is carried out at the global processing centers: Verification of message quality, reception level, time-tagging, transmitter identification number, sensor message lengths and receiver frequency value (to compute the location) Message time-tagging in coordinated universal time (UTC) Message classification by platform and by chronological order Data processing Data from satellite tag deployments are received by CLS Argos and are distributed to us by CD. Data are uploaded to Movebank. The DAR filter is used and outliers are marked within the dataset.
