Census of Marine Life logbook Data
The data presented here were collected as part of the History of Marine Animal Populations project, within the Census of Marine Life project.
They include daily information on the location of whaling vessels throughout individual voyages, from a sample of logbooks kept on board individual vessels. Included are location, whaling activity, encounters with whales, including numbers seen, struck, and landed, and the products obtained.
This database consists of four tables, each of which is viewable individually:
- Daily vessel locations (VOYDAY)
- Whales encountered and captured (EST)
- Whaling vessels encountered (SPOKEN)
- Miscellaneous whale products (MISPROD)
For research purposes, the complete database may be downloaded for processing on your local computer.
