Birds of the Offshore Canadian Beaufort Sea: Database and Atlas

Existing data on bird sightings and surveys in the Canadian Beaufort Sea were found, assembled, reviewed, cleaned, and organized into a standardized database structure. Data were collected primarily during recent seismic surveys conducted by the oil and gas industry, and government research cruises. The data are grouped into cruise, watch, and sighting categories. Cruise data include general information about the overall survey program. Watch data consists of information about specific survey dates, times, observers, ship speed, and environmental conditions. Sighting data includes species identification, age, sex, numbers, and behaviour.
