This video shows how we use the movements of tagged whales to find areas that were used most often. The environmental characteristics of these places can then let us predict other places whales might be found by finding places with similar characteristics.
Tracking the movements of whales gives us a detailed view of where the whales spend their time, but we also want to know what they are doing in the places they go, so we can understand why they are using some areas and not others. This video shows an example of the dive behavior data we can collect and how we can use it to learn what whales are doing in an area.
