Section for Marine Mammal Research is part of Institute for Bioscience at Aarhus University. We are located on RisΓΈ peninsula just north of Roskilde. One of our key activities is to understand the natural behavior and human impacts on marine mammals by following their movements year round with electronic devices. Some of these use the Argos satellite system, which provides real time locations of the tagged animals. You can now be part of our job and follow several species of fascinating mammals living at sea!

Argos satellite

Using Argos

Argos is a pioneer satellite-based system which has been operating since 1978. The Argos system collects data from Platform Terminal Transmitters, PTTs, and distribute sensor and location data to the final users within half an hour or less. It is the only worldwide system to follow animals that are only shortly at the surface to breath.
