Migratory Timing and Site Use of Marbled Godwits Breeding in Alaska, 2008-2015

Data Download [26KB] | Metadata | AK Science Portal | Project Site | Date Range: 2008 - 2015


This dataset contains migration timing and land-based location information from nine Marbled Godwits (Limosa fedoa beringiae) equipped with solar-powered satellite transmitters on breeding grounds near Ugashik, Alaska, in June of 2008. Transmitters were programmed with a duty cycle of 10 hr on and 48 hr off, yielding 10,858 locations (47-3,490 locations per bird, depending on the duration of each transmitter's functional deployment). This dataset provides summarized timing and location data for each transmittered bird.
