From: Eyes in the sky: linking satellite oceanography and biotelemetry to explore habitat selection by basking sharks

Figure 1

Satellite-linked ‘smart’ position only transmitter (SPOT) positions (white circles) and correlated random walk positions (black dots) during Month A - June/July (a), Month B - July/August (b), Month C - August/September (c), and Month D - September/October (d) overlaid on monthly composite sea surface temperature (SST) from the concurrent period. Stars symbolize the tagging locations of the sharks. The cumulative monthly minimum convex polygon (MCP) area is also provided as a measurement of activity space. Habitat use was derived from the SPOT positions and available habitat was derived from the randomized positions in each period.
