      Animal telemetry is a powerful tool for observing marine animals and the physical environments that they inhabit, from coastal and continental shelf ecosystems to polar seas and open oceans. Satellite-linked biologgers and ...
    • A white humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) in the Atlantic Ocean, Svalbard, Norway, August 2012 

      Lydersen, Christian; Øien, Nils; Mikkelsen, Bjarni; Bober, Simon; Fisher, Dan; Kovacs, Kit M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013-04-26)
      A white humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) was observed on several occasions off Svalbard, Norway, during August 2012. The animal was completely white, except for a few small dark patches on the ventral side of its ...
    • Distribution of sex and age groups of ringed seals Pusa hispida in the fast-ice breeding habitat of Kongsfjorden, Svalbard

      Spatial distribution of various age- and sex groups of ringed seals (N = 94; 19 adult males, 33 adult females and 42 subadults) was studied in their fast-ice breeding habitat in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard, during May 2004. ...
    • Hooded seal Cystophora cristata foraging areas in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean—Investigated using three complementary methods 

      Vacquie-Garcia, Jade; Lydersen, Christian; Biuw, Martin; Haug, Tore; Fedak, Michael A.; Kovacs, Kit M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Identifying environmental characteristics that define the ecological niche of a species is essential to understanding how changes in physical conditions might affect its distribution and other aspects of its ecology. The ...
    • Importance of fast ice and glacier fronts for female polar bears and their cubs during spring in Svalbard, Norway 

      Freitas, Carla; Kovacs, Kit M.; Andersen, Magnus; Aars, Jon; Sandven, Stein; Skern-Mauritzen, Mette; Pavlova, Olga; Lydersen, Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-02-13)
      Arctic sea ice is declining rapidly, making it vital to understand the importance of different types of sea ice for ice-dependent species such as polar bears Ursus maritimus. In this study we used GPS telemetry (25 polar ...
