    • Bimodal winter haul-out patterns of adult Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) in the southern Weddell Sea 

      Boehme, Lars; Baker, Amy; Fedak, Mike; Årthun, Marius; Nicholls, Keith; Robinson, Patrick; Costa, Dan; Biuw, Martin; Photopoulou, Theoni (2016-05-19) - Journal article
      Hauling out is an essential component of pinniped life-history. Haul-out behaviour may be affected by biological (e.g. sex, age and condition) and physical factors (e.g. food availability and environmental conditions), and ...
    • Marine mammals exploring the oceans pole to pole : a review of the MEOP consortium 

      Treasure, Anne; Roquet, Fabien; Ansorge, Isabelle J.; Bester, Marthán N.; Boehme, Lars; Bornemann, Horst; Charrassin, Jean-Benoit; Chevallier, Damien; Costa, Daniel P.; Fedak, Michael Andre; Guinet, Christophe; Hammill, Mike O.; Harcourt, Robert G.; Hindell, Mark A.; Kovacs, Kit M.; Lea, Mary-Anne; Lovell, Philip; Lowther, Andrew D.; Lydersen, Christian; McIntyre, Trevor; McMahon, Clive R.; Muelbert, Mônica M.C.; Nicholls, Keith; Picard, Baptiste; Reverdin, Gilles; Trites, Andrew W.; Williams, Guy D.; de Bruyn, P.J. Nico (2017) - Journal item
      Polar oceans are poorly monitored despite the important role they play in regulating the Earth’s climate system. Marine mammals equipped with biologging devices are now being used to fill the data gaps in these logistically ...
    • Seasonal inflow of warm water onto the southern Weddell Sea continental shelf, Antarctica 

      Arthun, Marius; Nicholls, Keith; Makinson, Keith; Fedak, Mike; Boehme, Lars (2012-09-01) - Journal article
      To capture the austral summer to winter transition in water mass properties over the southern Weddell Sea continental shelf and slope region Weddell seals were tagged with miniaturized conductivity–temperature–depth sensors ...
    • Sex-related differences in the postmolt distribution of Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) in the southern Weddell Sea 

      Langley, Izzy; Fedak, Mike; Nicholls, Keith; Boehme, Lars (2018-04) - Journal article
      The population of Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) in the southern Weddell Sea is in a unique position on the continental shelf edge, with vast shelf waters to the south, and deep Southern Ocean to the north. We ...
    • Wind-driven upwelling around grounded tabular icebergs 

      Stern, Alon; Johnson, Eric; Wagner, Till; Holland, David; Wadhams, Peter; Bates, C. Richard; Abrahamsen, Povl; Nicholls, Keith; Crawford, Anna; Gagnon, Jonathan; Tremblay, Jean-Eric (2015-08-24) - Journal article
      Temperature and salinity data collected around grounded tabular icebergs in Baffin Bay in 2011, 2012 and 2013 indicate wind-induced upwelling at certain locations around the icebergs. These data suggest that along one side ...
    • Wintertime water mass modification near an Antarctic Ice Shelf front 

      Arthun, Marius; Nicholls, Keith; Boehme, Lars (2013-02) - Journal article
      Under ice measurements by seals carrying a miniaturized conductivity–temperature–depth (CTD) instrument fill an important gap in existing observations. Here we present data from an instrumented Weddell seal that spent 8 ...
