Available here are filtered location tracking data collected from satellite radio-collars fitted on adult female polar bears in the Chukchi Sea, between 1985-1996. The collars were attached to adult female polar bears captured within the Chukchi Sea subpopulation boundaries as identified by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Polar Bear Specialist Group.
