Table 1 Number of individual data sets by species and data type. Argos data types are: Least-Squares (LS); Kalman filter (KF); Kalman smoother (KS). Mean track durations were calculated from the data after removing periods of prolonged data gaps. Tag programming details were not available for all deployments, so Argos and GPS sampling rates were calculated from the unfiltered data

From: A continuous-time state-space model for rapid quality control of argos locations from animal-borne tags
