24.09.2018 EUCAW Speakers The RSPB and Argos – an overview of using satellite telemetry in scientific research

At the European User Conference on Argos Wildlife (EUCAW), Nigel Butcher will discuss how the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has benefitted from the Argos tracking system. His work, although primarily focussed on species in the UK and UK Overseas Territory (UKOT’s), does…

24.09.2018 EUCAW Speakers Reporting on the work of Russian scientists in the Arctic using specialized Argos tags

Alexandre Salman, of ES-PAS, reports on the work of Russian scientists at the European User Conference on Argos Wildlife (EUCAW). As he explains, since Argos instruments fly onboard polar-orbiting satellites, therefore, in Arctic zones, satellite passes are more frequent and scientists are able to transmit a higher…

24.09.2018 EUCAW Speakers Oceanographic Turtles: Integration of sea turtle tracking with ocean observing systems

At the European User Conference on Argos Wildlife (EUCAW), David March will present the “Oceanographic Turtles” project which aims to provide the scientific basis to support the development of risk mitigation techniques based on new ocean observing and forecasting systems and contribute to the conservation of marine turtles. Argos satellite…

24.09.2018 EUCAW Speakers Use of Argos data for fisheries management & conservation: ICCAT perspective

Francisco Alemany’s presentation at the European User’s Conference on Argos Wildlife (EUCAW) will focus on the ICCAT Atlantic Wide Research Programme for Bluefin Tuna (ICCAT GBYP) started with electronic tag activities on Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) in 2011, when the first few pop-up satellite tags were…

24.09.2018 EUCAW Speakers When deep diving seals help us to observe rapidly changing of polar oceans

At the European User Conference on Argos Wildlife (EUCAW), Christophe Guinet’s presentation will focus on how polar seals are used to collect in-situ measurements of temperature, salinity, fluorescence and light along their paths during their dives and which complement and extend to deep depth satellite surface observations.

19.09.2018 Animal tracking applications Sunfish, a giant mysterious animal in our oceans

Fisheries management is a touchy question all around the world. The many species exploited require quotas, seasonal or regional limitations on fishing in order to maintain stocks at renewable levels. Argos satellite telemetry enables better understanding of the behavior of underwater species, and thus makes it possible to decide on…

11.09.2018 Animal tracking applications Unlocking the mysteries of the Arctic fox

The Argos satellite telemetry system made it possible for a team of researchers led by Dominique Berteaux from the University of Québec in Rimouski to better understand the behavior of the mysterious Arctic fox in Canada’s Nunavut region, as revealed in a recent article in Le Monde.

10.09.2018 Flash news The future of ARGOS satellite telemetry and Kinéis

For nearly 40 years, the international space agencies that manage the Argos system have been committed to technological advancements. Capitalizing on this long experience in state-of-the-art, innovative instrumentation, the French Space Agency, CNES, has invested in a new generation of Argos payloads, called Argos-4, that will fly…

21.08.2018 birds Lesser Kestrels back in Bulgaria

Endangered species can be locally so. The Lesser Kestrel, a small falcon, was all but extinct in Bulgaria. A project enabled to reintroduce the prey bird in this country, with satellite tagging and tracking of its migration, to understand the best way to protect it. The…

31.07.2018 Animal tracking applications Whale sharks, big friendly giants of the ocean

Whale sharks are about the opposite of your archetypal shark. These gentle giants, the biggest fish in Earth’s oceans, are living on a steady diet of plankton (with the addition of small crustacean, fish and squids). There’s still a lot we don’t know about this wildlife marine species, though. Understanding…
