Table 1 Estimates of the STAMM parameters for juvenile leatherback turtles in the North Atlantic Ocean

From: Modeling the active dispersal of juvenile leatherback turtles in the North Atlantic Ocean

Species-dependent parameters
v 0 1.2 m s− 1
T 1 T1 = 24–1.05 M0.5
T 2 T2 = 24–0.21 M0.5
T 3 ,T 4 Inoperative and hence not estimated
Parameters depending on simulated ocean properties
α 3 106
 P0 80 mmol C m− 2 day− 1
  1. M is the mass of the simulated individual in kilograms
  2. Pivotal temperatures (T1 to T4) are in °C
