The movie shows the region of the Antarctic Peninsula (land mask: dark grey; ice shelf: light grey). Sea ice cover (colour coded) is shown in a daily time series beginning 2000-03-01 for 12 month. Adult male southern elephant seals (white circle symbols) had been equipped with satellite transmitters at King George Island (South Shetland Islands). The individual symbols appear in red for the initial and terminal location of each seal.
