This dataset contains ARGOS location data (latitude and longitude in decimal format) and associated time (date and time) and location quality (as defined by Argos System, www.argos-system.org) information. Data were collected using Wildlife Computers PTT-only SPOT 5 satellite transmitters and PTT identification is also provided with the data. Satellite transmitters were deployed on North Pacific humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) in the eastern Bering Sea.
