Bowhead Whale Distribution in the Southeastern Beaufort Sea and Amundsen Gulf, Summer 1979
The distribution of bowhead whales in the southeastern Beaufort Sea and Amundsen Gulf was determined from observations aboard commercial resupply vessels. Fifty-four to sixty-two whale sightings were recorded on the 2150 km (1 160 nm) of transects. Distribution of whale sightings along transects was clumped.
