This summer, we will equip 16 barnacle geese with a GPS neck collar, which will log every 15 minutes their position and send the data to us via a telephone network. Unfortunately, when we are in Ny-Ålesund, we will still have to locate the geese with our binoculars, as this town does not allow radio-transmitters. The data will be stored in a memory and come in later, while on migration. But from than on, we will have daily updates.
Margje is testing and programming the bands in Oslo as we can transmit here. The data are logged and appear on a computer in Vienna.
