Sea turtle acoustic and radio telemetry data in the Atlantic Ocean from 2013-2014 (NCEI Accession 0160089)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data set contains acoustic tag readings that were attached to sea turtles captured in various fishing gears. These sea turtles were either actively or passively tracked to record movement and determine habitat preference. This data set also contains radio telemetry data from one sea turtle that was tracked by both radio and acoustic telemetry.
