Title Doubly-labelled water data and energetics comparison used to generate figures
Downloaded 107 times
Description Includes several worksheets: (1) "Background" are the background deuterium and oxygen-18 measuremetns from thick-billed mures in 2006. (2) "DEE calculations" provides the raw ppm data and calculations made to estimate daily enegy expenditure in thick-billed murres. Each band number (ID) can be cross-referenced with the time-activity file. (3) "Activity costs" represents the average body mass, mass loss and activity budgets and total energy expenditure (from Part (2)) used to calculate activity-specific costs. (4) "Interspecies comparison" data used to generate figures in the paper. (5) "Morphological comparison" database used to generate the figures in the paper. (6) "PECO ppm and DEE": Pelagic cormorant ppm data and calculations used to estimate daily energy expenditure. (7) "PECOactivity": Pelagic cormorant activity budgets (derived from accelerometer files) and daily energy expenditure (from 6), along with mass and mass loss (from 6).

Title Thick-billed murre text data files used to generate activity budgets
Downloaded 47 times
Description Dive data files from Lotek 1100 time-depth recorders recorded at 3 second intervals. Each file name has the five- or eight-digit band number that corresponds to the doubly-labelled water measurements, except for those birds that were not banded and only identified by colour marked on their chest. One recorder was also attached to the top of the blind to record ambient temperature and pressure. Each text file has, after, a pre-amble, the date-time, depth (in psi; multiply by 0.71 to approximate depth in m) and temperature (in degrees Celsius).

Title CEFAS G6A pelagic cormorant files (Part 1a)
Downloaded 48 times
Description Text files downloaded from the accelerometers attached to pelagic cormorants (first of five folders). Each folder refers to one individual bird (cross-referenced with doubly-labelled water data). The file name within each folder refers to the CSV file created by the CEFAS program and has the logger ID and the date the file was created (downloaded). The data file provides date/time, depth (pressure in dbars which is generally equivalent to depth in m) and acceleration in three dimensions at 25 Hz (in g), after a preamble generated by the logger that includes the daylog. Note that data is partitioned into two sections. The first section has data every 1 s, the second section has data at 25 Hz in the "fast log"; for five files, the fine-scale (25 Hz) data was only recorded when the bird was diving. The CEFAS G6A manual is here: https://www.cefastechnology.co.uk/downloads/file.aspx?file=33.
