  1. For each turtle the first entry represents results from the surface model; the second entry (if present) is for the water column model. A single entry per turtle indicates a lack of depth data, and hence results are only for the surface model. An 'x’ in the cell indicates a positive linear response to the covariate. Bold turtle IDs are tracks long enough to extend into the putative foraging grounds south of 5 °S.
