Abstract

Results of the moving Estimated Distance and Angle (ED) and the whale tracking experiments conducted on the 1987/8 IWC/IDCR Antarctic sightings survey of Balaenoptera acutorostrata are presented. The first of these experiments indicates significant correlation between estimation errors while tracking and gives distance bias estimates which conflict with those from the stationary ED experiment. -from Authors
