Description:
Abstract:
These are data collected from Wildlife Computers ear tag platform transmitter terminals (PTT) deployed on polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea during the months of March, April, August, September, and October between 2009 and 2011.
Purpose:
To examine the performance and retention of ear tag satellite transmitters attached to polar bears.

Every Wildlife Computers tag sends regular status messages in addition to transmitting its experimental information. Status messages contain information which indicates the health and overall state of the tag. Column names are set by Wildlife Computers software. The user is advised that this file includes records before the tag was deployed on a bear and may include records after the tag was removed from the bear. The user of this data is advised to reference tag deployment histories in BearID in USGS_WC_eartag_deployments_2009-2011. The data in this file have not undergone any tests for spatial accuracy.
