Nine annotated albatross trajectories. The tracks of nine adult albatrosses, overall containing 8286 GPS locations, during the breeding season in June to September 2008, (a) color coded with annotated values of 8-day ocean NPP (see Table 1 for more information on this variable), (b) the same tracks (yellow lines) plotted on the geographic area annotation using the monthly MODIS-ocean chlorophyll-a variable (Table 1) for the month of July 2008. We used the KML data format and combined the annotated area with a Google-Earth satellite image of the region using the program Matlab and its “Google Earth Toolbox”.
