Tracking great spotted cuckoos

23.02.2014 Goniometer Tracking great spotted cuckoos

“In May of 2013, we began tracking several Great Spotted Cuckoos with Argos 5g solar PTTs. In July of 2013, the position of one of them stabilized in a location 50 kms away from its capture area and we believed it had died. The PTT still transmitted from time to time but it was impossible for us to find it with the information provided by these transmissions... Considering the investment that is made in our PTTs, the goniometer seems to be a good tool to ensure we get as much use out of them as possible...

Finding a glider in the Southern Ocean

01.02.2014 Goniometer Finding a glider in the Southern Ocean

In February 2014, a research team from the University of East Anglia deployed two Seagliders in the Amundsen Sea, to study the water salinity, temperature, and oxygen levels. The gliders use the Iridium satellite communication system for data relay, but the University team systematically attaches a robust SPOT-5 Argos tag to the antenna, in case of any malfunction with the Iridium system. After several days, communication with one of the two gliders became difficult.
