Abstract
This dataset contains motion-sensing and video recording data from CATS biologging tags deployed on Antarctic minke whales in 2018 and 2019. The data are used to determine underwater behavior and link foraging rates to environmental covariates to better understand the ecological role of this poorly known krill predator. Specifically, we are interested in how the presence and amount of ice affects the behavior of this species in the nearshore waters on the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula, a region experiencing rapid climate change.
