Satellite Location and Tri-axial Accelerometer Data from Adult Female Polar Bears (Ursus maritimus) in the Southern Beaufort Sea, April-October 2014

February 9, 2020

These data are from 5 adult female polar bears instrumented in the southern Beaufort Sea, April to October 2014. The dataset is comprised of two data packages: 1) contains GPS and Argos locations collected by satellite-linked GPS receivers mounted on external collars, and 2) contains archival logger data including measures of tri-axial acceleration and conductivity. These data were collected to gain insights into the movement patterns, behaviors, and energetics of adult female polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea.
