Tracking turtles

Two graphs to show the data from trackers placed on the backs of turtles.

Detailed Description

The ADL allows scientists to collect detailed information about a sea turtle’s movement over time. In the graph, the turtle’s depth (black), rate of movement or flipperbeats (blue), and the body pitch or angle of the turtle (red) tell scientists a lot about what the turtle is doing and how much energy it is using.
