Bowhead Whale Subsistence Sensitivity Mapping



This data set contains bowhead whale subsistence data and mapping, gathered from 01 January 2003 through 31 December 2003. These data are part of the Barrow Area Spatial Data Infrastructure effort. The Bowhead Whale Subsistence Sensitivity mapping project includes GIS data on migration routes, seasonal ranges, hunting and search areas, and other areas highly sensitive to seasonal disturbance. The data and associated map are intended to be used as a guide in the planning and execution of research in arctic marine environments.

Please see documentation for more information and processing done.
