Argos DCS System Use Agreement of the Month
– September 2016
Whale Telemetry Group
Oregon State University – Marine Mammal Institute
This program explores the movements, dive patterns and behavior of marine mammals.
Our primary emphasis has been on endangered large whales but we also undertake management studies of significant problems with small cetaceans (dolphins and porpoises) and pinnipeds (seals and sea lions).
The basic information that we seek is the location of these animals to determine their migratory routes and seasonal habitats.
Our goals are to promote the wise use and conservation of marine resources including the identification of critical habitats and recommendations to promote their preservation.
