New method for mapping the swimming migration in auks
An example of how data from geolocators can be used even when light conditions are too poor to calculate positions.
First estimates of body mass change between the breeding and wintering stages in Atlantic Puffins
Presents critical information for improving predictions of the effects of extreme weather events on the species.
The concentration of contaminants in great skuas is determined mainly by choice of prey
New research reveals that diet specialization in Arctic seabirds is more important for exposure to contaminants than wintering area or long-range transport.

SEAPOP key document 2005-2014 (PDF)
A summary of the results of the SEAPOP programme and of the changes in the seabird populations (in Norwegian only).
- Fit is fat: winter body mass of Atlantic Puffins Fratercula arctica.
- The effect of long-range transport, trophic position and diet specialization on legacy contaminant occurrence in great skuas, Stercorarius skua, breeding across the Northeast Atlantic.
- Prevailing weather conditions and diet composition affect chick growth and survival in the black-legged kittiwake.
- Moult location and diet of auks in the North Sea inferred from coupled light-based and isotope-based geolocation.
- Multiple stressors: modeling the effect of pollution, climate and predation on viability of a sub-arctic marine bird.
