Description
Gridded abundance maps of marine mammals (sperm whale, short beaked common dolphin, common bottlenose dolphin, Atllantic spotted dolphin) around the Azores. This product was developed with DIVA (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis). Data was provided by the Azores Fisheries Observation Programme (POPA). more
