Table 2 Argos track summary statistics by species and data type. prop’n A,B is the proportion of all locations that are in quality class A and B. Error ellipse shape is the ratio of semi-minor to semi-major axis length, with values closer to 1 indicating a more circular shape. Shape and area statistics were calculated from values pooled among individuals within species and Argos data type

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