Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains archival logger data containing measures of tri-axial acceleration and conductivity for 6 female polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea in April 2014-2016.
Purpose:
These data were collected to gain insights into the spring activity rates of female polar bears without dependent young in the southern Beaufort Sea.
