Data Attributes

Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
100
turtle_id character 4-digit unique code assigned to turtle by NMFS Staff. This field can be used to track turtles that had different tags and/or transmitters attached to them
100
deployid character Argos Platform Transmitter Terminal identifier
100
Ptt Character Argos Platform Transmitter Terminal identifier
100
Instr Character Type of satellite tag (SPLASH, SPOT, MK10)
100
RTC Date Value of the tag's on board clock (Time and date)
100
Date_Time_msg_received date date and time when message was received by Argos
100
Time_Offset numeric Calculated difference between the tag's clock and the time reported by Argos. Adding this value to the value in the RTC' column should yield the value in the Date_Time_msg_received column
100
LocationQuality character Class of location generated by Argos for the satellite pass containing this message
100
Latitude numeric Latitude portion of the location generated by Argos
100
Longitude numeric Longitude portion of the location generated by Argos
100
Type Character Some tags send strongly validated status messages, others do not. If this message was strongly validated, the field contains a value such as 'CRC' or 'CKSUM'. If blank, you may want to look for repeated messages to confirm the data is accurate
100
hauledout character Contains '1' if the tag was hauled out at the time of the transmission, '0' if not halued out, and is blank if the tag does not support haulout or if the original message did not contain haulout information
100
BrokenThermistor Character Some tags have an external thermistor which may be subject to damage. This field is '1' if the tag has detected a broken thermistor, '0' if the thermistor is not broken, and blank if the tag does not transmit this information
100
number_ Argos_transmissions numeric The number of Argos transmissions generated by the tag
100
Battery_Voltage numeric Battery voltage measured by the tag during the transmission of this status message
100
Transmitter_Voltage Numeric Transmitter's Power Amp supply voltage. Used for diagnostics by Wildlife Computers
100
Transmitter_Current Numeric Transmitter's Power Amp supply current. Used for diagnostics by Wildlife Computers
100
temperature numeric Temperature measured by the tag just prior to this transmission
100
MaxDepth numeric Maximum depth measured by the tag during some previous period (usually the previous day, but can vary depending on tag type).
100
ZeroDepthOffset numeric The amount of offset that the tag is currently applying to the Depth sensor readings if the Zero Offset Correction feature is enabled on the tag. The feature is working correctly if 0 meters = Depth + ZeroDepthOffset*Resolution where Depth is the uncorrected dvalue reported in this status message
100
MinWetDry numeric The minimum wet/dry sensor value observed during the previous day
100
MaxWetDry Numeric The maximum wet/dry sensor value observed during the previous day
100
WetDryThreshold Numeric The current wet/dry sensor threshold value. Wet/dry sensor values above this value indicate the tag is dry. Sensor values less than this value indicate the tag is wet
100
StatusWord Numeric This low level diagnostic work Is sent to illuminate the tag's internal state. This is used for diagnostics at WC
