Platform Transmitting Terminal (PTT) tracking of Antarctic Fur Seals at South Georgia, from 1998 onwards
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01221

Summary

Abstract:
Platform Transmitting Terminal (PTT) tags have been used to track Antarctic Fur seals, (Arctocephalus gazella) from South Georgia, since 1998. PTT tags use the ARGOS satellite system to collect geospatial data. These tags are deployed on a project-by-project basis and so data are not available for every year. Tags are generally deployed during the summer season.
