Estimated path and movement behavior states during a foraging trip of a northern fur seal that hauls out in the Pribilof Islands, Alaska. Results are presented for discrete- and continuous-time movement process models. Estimated movement states for the predicted locations correspond to “resting” (red), “foraging” (green), and “transit” (blue) movement behavior states. Uncertainty in the state assignments (<95% posterior probability) are indicated by hollow circles within predicted locations. Uncertainty in predicted locations are indicated by 95% credible bands (dashed lines).
