Title: Sea_turtle_acoustic_telemetry_data.csv
Abstract:

Acoustic transmitters attached to sea turtles captured in various fishing gear enable the animals to be passively tracked. Acoustic receivers set up in an array detect sea turtles with acoustic transmitters as they travel through an area. Once a week, detected transmissions are downloaded from each receiver to a laptop via blue tooth. Using date, time, and and number of transmission for each transmitter allows us to determine movements and locations of acoustically tracked sea turtles using an acoustic array of receivers.

Purpose:

To determine movements and habitat preference of acoustically tracked sea turtles within Core and Pamlico Sounds, NC
