Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale using the Amplatzer septal occluder to prevent recurrence of neurological decompression illness in divers. (1/538)

OBJECTIVE: Large flap valve patent foramens may cause paradoxical thromboembolism and neurological decompression illness in divers. The ability of a self expanding Nitinol wire mesh device (Amplatzer septal occluder) to produce complete closure of the patent foramen ovale was assessed. PATIENTS: Seven adults, aged 18-60 years, who had experienced neurological decompression illness related to diving. Six appeared to have a normal atrial septum on transthoracic echocardiography, while one was found to have an aneurysm of the interatrial septum. METHODS: Right atrial angiography was performed to delineate the morphology of the right to left shunt. The defects were sized bidirectionally with a precalibrated balloon filled with dilute contrast. The largest balloon diameter that could be repeatedly passed across the septum was used to select the occlusion device diameter. Devices were introduced through 7 F long sheaths. All patients underwent transthoracic contrast echocardiography one month after the implant. RESULTS: Device placement was successful in all patients. Device sizes ranged from 9-14 mm. The patient with an aneurysm of the interatrial septum had three defects, which were closed with two devices. Right atrial angiography showed complete immediate closure in all patients. Median (range) fluoroscopy time was 13.7 (6-35) minutes. Follow up contrast echocardiography showed no right to left shunting in six of seven patients and the passage of a few bubbles in one patient. All patients have been allowed to return to diving. CONCLUSION: The Amplatzer septal occluder can close the large flap valve patent foramen ovale in divers who have experienced neurological decompression illness. Interatrial septal aneurysms with multiple defects may require more than one device.  (+info)

Experiment of nitrox saturation diving with trimix excursion. (2/538)

Depth limitations to diving operation with air as the breathing gas are well known: air density, oxygen toxicity, nitrogen narcosis and requirement for decompression. The main objectives of our experiment were to assess the decompression, counterdiffusion and performance aspect of helium-nitrogen-oxygen excursions from nitrox saturation. The experiment was carried out in a wet diving stimulator with "igloo" attached to a 2-lock living chamber. Four subjects of two teams of 2 divers were saturated at 25 msw simulated depth in a nitrogen oxygen chamber environment for 8 days, during which period they performed 32 divers-excursions to 60 or 80 msw pressure. Excursion gas mix was trimix of 14.6% oxygen, 50% helium and 35.4% nitrogen, which gave a bottom oxygen partial pressure of 1.0 bars at 60 msw and 1.3 at 80 msw. Excursions were for 70 min at 60 msw with three 10-min work periods and 40 min at 80 msw with two 10-min work periods. Work was on a bicycle ergometer at a moderate level. We calculated the excursion decompression with M-Values based on methods of Hamilton (Hamilton et al., 1990). Staged decompression took 70 min for the 60 msw excursion and 98 min for 80 msw, with stops beginning at 34 or 43 msw respectively. After the second dive day bubbles were heard mainly in one diver but in three divers overall, to Spencer Grade III some times. No symptoms were reported. Saturation decompression using the Repex procedures began at 40 msw and was uneventful: Grade II and sometimes III bubbles persisted in 2 of the four divers until 24 hr after surfacing. We conclude that excursions with mixture rich in helium can be performed effectively to as deep as 80 msw using these procedures.  (+info)

Development of diving capacity in emperor penguins. (3/538)

To compare the diving capacities of juvenile and adult emperor penguins Aptenodytes forsteri, and to determine the physiological variables underlying the diving ability of juveniles, we monitored diving activity in juvenile penguins fitted with satellite-linked time/depth recorders and examined developmental changes in body mass (Mb), hemoglobin concentration, myoglobin (Mb) content and muscle citrate synthase and lactate dehydrogenase activities. Diving depth, diving duration and time-at-depth histograms were obtained from two fledged juveniles during the first 2.5 months after their depature from the Cape Washingon colony in the Ross Sea, Antarctica. During this period, values of all three diving variables increased progressively. After 8-10 weeks at sea, 24-41 % of transmitted maximum diving depths were between 80 and 200 m. Although most dives lasted less than 2 min during the 2 month period, 8-25 % of transmitted dives in the last 2 weeks lasted 2-4 min. These values are lower than those previously recorded in adults during foraging trips. Of the physiological variables examined during chick and juvenile development, only Mb and Mb content did not approach adult values. In both near-fledge chicks and juveniles, Mb was 50-60 % of adult values and Mb content was 24-31 % of adult values. This suggests that the increase in diving capacity of juveniles at sea will be most dependent on changes in these factors.  (+info)

Heart rate and behavior of fur seals: implications for measurement of field energetics. (4/538)

Archival data loggers were used to collect information about depth, swimming speed, and heart rate in 23 free-ranging antarctic fur seals. Deployments averaged 9.6 +/- 5.6 days (SD) and totaled 191 days of recording. Heart rate averaged 108.7 +/- 17.7 beats/min (SD) but varied from 83 to 145 beats/min among animals. Morphometrics explained most variations in heart rate among animals. These interacted with diving activity and swimming speed to produce a complex relationship between heart rate and activity patterns. Heart rate was also correlated with behavior over time lags of several hours. There was significant (P < 0.05) variation among animals in the degree of diving bradycardia. On average, heart rate declined from 100-130 beats/min before the dive to 70-100 beats/min during submersion. On the basis of the relationship between heart rate and rate of oxygen consumption, the overall metabolic rate was 5.46 +/- 1.61 W/kg (SD). Energy expenditure appears to be allocated to different activities within the metabolic scope of individual animals. This highlights the possibility that some activities can be mutually exclusive of one another.  (+info)

Convective oxygen transport and tissue oxygen consumption in Weddell seals during aerobic dives. (5/538)

Unlike their terrestrial counterparts, marine mammals stop breathing and reduce their convective oxygen transport while performing activities (e.g. foraging, courtship, aggressive interactions, predator avoidance and migration) that require sustained power output during submergence. Since most voluntary dives are believed to remain aerobic, the goal of this study was to examine the potential importance of the dive response in optimizing the use of blood and muscle oxygen stores during dives involving different levels of muscular exertion. To accomplish this, we designed a numerical model based on Fick's principle that integrated cardiac output (Vb), regional blood flow, convective oxygen transport (Q(O2)), muscle oxymyoglobin desaturation and regional rates of oxygen consumption (VO2). The model quantified how the optimal matching or mismatching of QO2 to VO2 affected the aerobic dive limit (ADL). We chose an adult Weddell seal Leptonycotes weddellii on which to base our model because of available data on the diving physiology and metabolism of this species. The results show that the use of blood and muscle oxygen stores must be completed at the same time to maximize the ADL for each level of VO2. This is achieved by adjusting Vb (range 19-94 % of resting levels) and muscle QO2 according to the rate of muscle oxygen consumption (VMO2). At higher values of VMO2, Vb and muscle perfusion must increase to maintain an appropriate QO2/VO2 ratio so that available blood and muscle oxygen stores are depleted at the same time. Although the dive response does not sequester blood oxygen exclusively for brain and heart metabolism during aerobic dives, as it does during forced submersion, a reduction in Vb and muscle perfusion below resting levels is necessary to maximize the ADL over the range of diving VO2 (approximately 2-9 ml O2 min-1 kg-1). Despite the reduction in Vb, convective oxygen transport is adequate to maintain aerobic metabolism and normal function in the splanchnic organs, kidneys and other peripheral tissues. As a result, physiological homeostasis is maintained throughout the dive. The model shows that the cardiovascular adjustments known as the dive response enable the diving seal to balance the conflicting metabolic demands of (1) optimizing the distribution and use of blood and muscle oxygen stores to maximize the ADL over the normal range of diving VO2 and (2) ensuring that active muscle receives adequate oxygen as VMO2 increases.  (+info)

Diving and the risk of barotrauma. (6/538)

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Pulmonary barotrauma (PBT) of ascent is a feared complication in compressed air diving. Although certain respiratory conditions are thought to increase the risk of suffering PBT and thus should preclude diving, in most cases of PBT, risk factors are described as not being present. The purpose of our study was to evaluate factors that possibly cause PBT. DESIGN: We analyzed 15 consecutive cases of PBT with respect to dive factors, clinical and radiologic features, and lung function. They were compared with 15 cases of decompression sickness without PBT, which appeared in the same period. RESULTS: Clinical features of PBT were arterial gas embolism (n = 13), mediastinal emphysema (n = 1), and pneumothorax (n = 1). CT of the chest (performed in 12 cases) revealed subpleural emphysematous blebs in 5 cases that were not detected in preinjury and postinjury chest radiographs. A comparison of predive lung function between groups showed significantly lower midexpiratory flow rates at 50% and 25% of vital capacity in PBT patients (p < 0.05 and p < 0.02, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that divers with preexisting small lung cysts and/or end-expiratory flow limitation may be at risk of PBT.  (+info)

High aerobic capacities in the skeletal muscles of pinnipeds: adaptations to diving hypoxia. (7/538)

The objective was to assess the aerobic capacity of skeletal muscles in pinnipeds. Samples of swimming and nonswimming muscles were collected from Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus, n = 27), Northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus, n = 5), and harbor seals (Phoca vitulina, n = 37) by using a needle biopsy technique. Samples were either immediately fixed in 2% glutaraldehyde or frozen in liquid nitrogen. The volume density of mitochondria, myoglobin concentration, citrate synthase activity, and beta-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase was determined for all samples. The swimming muscles of seals had an average total mitochondrial volume density per volume of fiber of 9.7%. The swimming muscles of sea lions and fur seals had average mitochondrial volume densities of 6.2 and 8.8%, respectively. These values were 1.7- to 2.0-fold greater than in the nonswimming muscles. Myoglobin concentration, citrate synthase activity, and beta-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase were 1.1- to 2. 3-fold greater in the swimming vs. nonswimming muscles. The swimming muscles of pinnipeds appear to be adapted for aerobic lipid metabolism under the hypoxic conditions that occur during diving.  (+info)

Functional and high-resolution computed tomographic studies of divers' lungs. (8/538)

OBJECTIVES: Several cross-sectional studies have described a decrease in the expiratory flow rates of divers. The objective of this study was to determine whether the combined application of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and lung function testing supports the reported development of small airway obstruction in divers. METHODS: Thirty-two navy divers, 27 commercial divers, and 48 referents matched for age and smoking history underwent pulmonary function testing and HRCT of the lungs supplemented by a limited number of expiratory scans. The commercial divers were older and dived longer than the navy divers. Multivariate regression analysis was used to assess the relevant correlations of age, height, pack-years of cigarette smoking, and indices of diving exposure with lung function parameters. RESULTS: The inspiratory vital capacity and forced vital capacity (FVC) were greater, while the FEV% [(100 x FEV10)FVC] and maximum expiratory flow (MEF) at 25% (MEF25) of the FVC were lower for the navy divers than for the referents. The lung volumes and expiratory airflow pattern did not differ between the commercial divers and the corresponding referents. The forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV10), FEV%, MEF75, and MEF25 correlated negatively with the years of diving experience. This association was independent of age, height, and pack-years of cigarette smoking. For the majority of the divers and referents the expiratory HRCT revealed minor lobular air trapping without any difference between the groups. The HRCT did not show relevant morphologic abnormalities of small or large airways. CONCLUSIONS: The data confirm that diving may affect pulmonary function. However, there is no radiologic evidence for the development of small airway disease in these 2 subgroups of divers.  (+info)

As with other things in life, starting is the hardest and most exciting aspect of diving. You might ask yourself how dangerous a try dive really is, if you meet the physical requirements, how to find a good diving school, or whether you will dare to start at all.. I shall begin this post with the supposed danger of scuba diving by assuring you that diving is statistically one of the safest sports one can practice, and actually poses, as long as you follow the rules, little or no danger. And which rules would those be? Some pretty basic ones indeed: no diving alone, no diving too deep nor for too long, no diving without the required experience in unfamiliar sites….. Physically, scuba diving is neither difficult nor strenuous, a try dive is far less demanding and requires far less energy or stamina than other popular sports such as running, spinning, or tennis playing. The most exhausting aspect of scuba diving is to don your diving equipment and get into the water. Once in the water you will ...
diving while breathing from self-contained underwater breathing apparatus Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving where the diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) which is completely independent of surface supply, to breathe underwater. Scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater independence and freedom of movement than surface-supplied divers, and longer underwater endurance than breath-hold divers. Open circuit scuba systems discharge the breathing gas into the environment as it is exhaled, and consist of one or more diving cylinders containing breathing gas at high pressure which is supplied to the diver through a regulator. They may include additional cylinders for decompression gas or emergency breathing gas. Closed-circuit or semi-closed circuit rebreather scuba systems allow recycling of exhaled gases. The volume of gas used is reduced compared to that of open circuit; therefore, a smaller cylinder or ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Comparative incidences of decompression illness in repetitive, staged, mixed-gas decompression diving. T2 - is dive fitness an influencing factor?. AU - Sayer, Martin. AU - Akroyd, J. AU - Williams, G D. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - Wreck diving at Bikini Atoll consists of a relatively standard series of decompression dives with maximum depths in the region of 45-55 metres sea water (msw). In a typical week of diving at Bikini, divers can perform up to 12 decompression dives to these depths over seven days; on five of those days, divers can perform two decompression dives per day. All the dives employ multi-level, staged decompression schedules using air and surface-supplied nitrox containing 80% oxygen. Bikini is serviced by a single diving operator and so a relatively precise record exists both of the actual number of dives undertaken and of the decompression illness incidents both for customer divers and the dive guides. The dive guides follow exactly the dive profiles and ...

Recreational scuba diving has become a popular sport in the United States, with almost 9 million certified divers. When severe diving injury occurs, the nervous system is frequently involved. In dive-related barotrauma, compressed or expanding gas within the ears, sinuses and lungs causes various forms of neurologic injury. Otic barotrauma often induces pain, vertigo and hearing loss. In pulmonary barotrauma of ascent, lung damage can precipitate arterial gas embolism, causing blockage of cerebral blood vessels and alterations of consciousness, seizures and focal neurologic deficits. In patients with decompression sickness, the vestibular system, spinal cord and brain are affected by the formation of nitrogen bubbles.

Despite technological advances that have given us an insight into the behaviour of phocid seals at sea, measurements of energy expenditure during active diving and foraging in this group are extremely difficult to make. The energetics of diving has received attention from ecologists and physiologists for both practical and theoretical reasons. Firstly, the rate of energy use during diving is important in understanding the complex balance of behaviour and physiology that shapes the foraging strategies of air-breathing animals exploiting an underwater prey resource. Pinnipeds provide a unique system for studying the relative importance of physiology in determining foraging behaviour (Costa et al., 2001). In order to determine how physiology constraints affect dive behaviour, we need to know how behaviour during the dive affects the rate of utilisation of the animals stored oxygen. Central to this is the concept of the aerobic dive limit (ADL). The ADL is the dive duration beyond which animals ...

Dr. John Melville, our Director of Biology, developed an innovative diving reflex laboratory exercise while teaching at Wartburg College. In the lab, students learn basic heart anatomy, histology of arteries and veins, and perform an EKG using Vernier sensors. The students then develop their own experiment, which often involved the diving reflex. Weddell Seal The diving reflex is an adaptation found in marine mammals for diving in cold water. During a dive, there is a reduction in heart rate, referred to as bradycardia, or the diving reflex. The majority of research on the diving reflex has been done on seals. The Weddell seal of Antarctica is a great example. Weddell seals can hold their breath for extended periods (20 minutes to an hour) and can dive to depths of 500 meters. During each dive, heart rate and cardiac output decrease dramatically as blood is shunted away from the extremities and directed to the vital organs. A much smaller version of the diving reflex occurs in humans and is easy to

Have you ever felt like you had water stuck in your ears or had muffled hearing after a dive? If so, you may have already experienced a mild ear barotrauma without realizing it. Ear barotraumas are the most common injury in recreational diving, yet with proper equalization techniques they are completely avoidable. Learn about the kinds of ear barotraumas, how to recognize them, and most importantly, how to avoid them.. What Is a Barotrauma?:. A barotrauma is a pressure related injury (baro refers to pressure and trauma refers to an injury). Many kinds of barotraumas are possible in diving, such as lung, sinus, and ear barotraumas.. What Causes an Ear Barotrauma?:. An ear barotrauma occurs when a diver can not properly equalize the pressure in his ears with the surrounding water pressure. Common causes of an ear barotrauma are ineffective equalization techniques, congestion, exceedingly forceful equalizations, or skipped equalizations.. At What Depth Is an Ear Barotrauma Likely?:. An ear ...
Beaked whales are extreme divers, with deeper and longer foraging dives than any other mammal species (Schorr et al., 2014; Shearer et al., 2019; Tyack et al., 2006). Time-depth recorders have been used to document beaked whale diving behaviour (Schorr et al., 2014; Shearer et al., 2019; Tyack et al., 2006), but direct measurements of metabolic rates or blood lactate levels do not exist. An approximation for the ADL of two beaked whale species was proposed (Tyack et al., 2006) by extrapolating from the estimated total O2 stores (93 ml O2 kg−1) and cADL (21 min) for a 330 kg Weddell seal, but these estimated ADLs of 25 min for Blainvilles beaked whale (Mesoplodon densirostris) and 33 min for Cuviers beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris) are exceeded, by a factor of approximately two, by the average duration of foraging dives commonly performed by these whales (Tyack et al., 2006). It has been suggested that these whales use prolonged periods at shallower depths between foraging dives to recover ...
We used backpack digital recorders to measure blood oxygen depletion, heart rate, and flipper stroke rate in dives of California sea lions during maternal foraging trips to sea from San Nicolas Island. The goals of this research are: 1) determination of the rate, pattern and magnitude of blood oxygen store depletion during both shallow and deep dives at sea, 2) documentation of heart rate profiles of shallow and deep dives, and assessment of the relationship between changes in heart rate to blood oxygen profiles, and 3) documentation of flipper stroke rate profiles during shallow and deep dives, and assessment of the relationship of stroke rate to both changes in heart rate and changes in blood oxygen profiles. This data has been collected and Dr. McDonald is finishing up analysis.. This summer, Mason Cole will collect data on the feeding behavior and find scale diving behavior of California sea lions using accelerometers to improve our understanding of their foraging energetics.. ...
Phocid seals go through dramatic seasonal changes in body mass and composition as a result of the spatial and temporal separation of foraging, reproduction and moulting. These changes in body fat content and body mass result in seasonal changes in buoyancy, which in turn may influence diving behaviour. We examined the longitudinal changes in buoyancy and diving behaviour of 14 adult grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) during two periods that represent maximal contrast in body mass and composition. During both the post-moulting (PM) and pre-breeding (PB) periods, grey seals were negatively buoyant. However, buoyancy increased by 47.9 % between the PM and PB periods. Descent rate was significantly faster during the PM period (1.0+/−0.07 m s(−1)) than during the PB period (0.7+/−0.06 m s(−1)), suggesting that seals were aided by negative buoyancy during the downward portion of dives. Ascent rate was also significantly faster during the PM period (0.8+/−0.06 m s(−1)) than during the PB ...

Our aim was to estimate the population of emperor penguins (Aptenodytes fosteri) using a single synoptic survey. We examined the whole continental coastline of Antarctica using a combination of medium resolution and Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery to identify emperor penguin colony locations. Where colonies were identified, VHR imagery was obtained in the 2009 breeding season. The remotely-sensed images were then analysed using a supervised classification method to separate penguins from snow, shadow and guano. Actual counts of penguins from eleven ground truthing sites were used to convert these classified areas into numbers of penguins using a robust regression algorithm. We found four new colonies and confirmed the location of three previously suspected sites giving a total number of emperor penguin breeding colonies of 46. We estimated the breeding population of emperor penguins at each colony during 2009 and provide a population estimate of ∼238,000 breeding pairs (compared with the
Sunburst Diving Beetles are black with bright yellow spots. The spots warn predators that they can protect themselves by releasing a chemical that tastes bad. Sunburst Diving Beetles are also called Spotted Diving Beetles. They are small beetles. Adults grow to approximately 1/2 of an inch in length. They have a pair of thin antennae and three pairs of legs. Their back legs have a thick fringe of hairs to enable strong swimming. The females are slightly larger than the males. The males also have suction disks on each foreleg.. Sunburst Diving Beetles breathe oxygen but they spend much of their time underwater. Adults are able to do this by creating a bubble of air that they take underwater. While floating on the water the Sunburst Diving Beetle will tip its abdomen up in the air and gather the air under their wing covers to use them like the air tanks human scuba divers use. They can stay submerged for several minutes. Larvae have a siphon like a snorkel coming out of the end of their bodies ...

A 68-year-old man with diabetes and chronic kidney disease presented with severe epigastric pain and nausea 30 min after scuba diving in Ishigaki Island, southern part of Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. He dived to 10 m (32.8 ft) twice, for an hour each diving. The length of bottom time was unknown. The temperature of the water was 29.0°C (84.2°F). His vital signs were stable. On palpation of abdomen, there was no evidence of guarding and tenderness. There was also no rash. Venous blood gas showed a pH of 7.314 and lactate of 3.03 mmol/L. Other laboratory values were unremarkable, including liver function tests and creatine kinase. An abdominal CT without contrast was performed because he had a history of allergic reaction to contrast agent. Abdominal CT demonstrated hepatic portal venous gas (HPVG, figures 1 and 2) and gases in the mesenteric vein (figure 2) and femoral vein (figure 3). There was no evidence of pneumatosis intestinalis. Based on the episode of scuba diving and the CT findings, he ...

Drug-induced hypersensitivity or Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptom (DRESS) is a severe adverse drug-induced reaction. Diagnosing DRESS is challenging due to the diversity of cutaneous eruption and organs involved. Most of the aromatic anticonvulsants, such as phenytoin, phenobarbital, and carbamazepine, can induce DRESS. Culprit drug withdrawal and corticosteroids constituted the mainstay of DRESS treatment. We describe a 6 year-old boy who presented fever and rash 4 weeks after starting carbamazepine. Investigation revealed leukocytosis, atypical lymphocytosis, and elevated serum transaminases. The diagnosis of DREES syndrome was made, Carbamazepine was stopped and replaced initially by Clobazam and by Valproic acid after discharge, no systemic corticotherapy was prescribed. Symptoms began to resolve within two weeks, and by one month later her laboratory values had returned to normal. The aim of this work is to raise awareness general practitioner and pediatricians to suspect Dress

Eighteen qualified U.S. Navy divers underwent either of two series of dives to 6.7 ATA for 45-50 minutes in compressed air in a dry chamber 4 dives at 3-day intervals or 5 dives performed daily. Serum and urinary components were monitored before and after the dives to compare the biologic influence of repeated diving with the known effects of hyperbaric saturation exposures. No diuresis or changes in glomerular filtration rate were demonstrated to result from the repeated sequences of pressurization and decompression. Biochemical evidence supports the previous finding of a hemodilution resulting from repeated short-term pressure exposures. The increasing extent of metabolic changes during the first few dives leads to the conclusion that adaptation to repeated dives may begin to play a role after two or three dives particularly when performed at three-day intervals. While no cumulative effects beyond those associated with 2- 3 dives are apparent when dives are performed with a few days intervening,
Adult emperor penguins stand up to 110-130 cm (43-51 in) tall.[8] The weight ranges from 22.7 to 45.4 kg (50 to 100 lb) and varies by sex, with males weighing more than females. It is the fifth heaviest living bird species, after only the larger varieties of ratite.[9] The weight also varies by season, as both male and female penguins lose substantial mass while raising hatchlings and incubating their egg. A male emperor penguin must withstand the Antarctic cold for more than two months to protect his egg from extreme cold. During this entire time he does not eat anything. Most male penguins will lose about 12 kg (26 lb) while they wait for their chicks to hatch.[10] The mean weight of males at the start of the breeding season is 38 kg (84 lb) and that of females is 29.5 kg (65 lb). After the breeding season this drops to 23 kg (51 lb) for both sexes.[11][12][13]. Like all penguin species, emperor penguins have streamlined bodies to minimize drag while swimming, and wings that are more like ...

This article is about some of the imperative emperor penguin facts for kids that are rarely known. This includes emperor penguins diet, habitat, behavior, and reproduction
Aptenodytes patagonicus is closely related to Aptenodytes forsteri, emperor penguins. Adult king penguins are smaller than emperor penguins, measuring between 85 and 95 cm tall. Males are generally taller than females, otherwise they are monomorphic. They weight from 11 to 15 kg. King penguins have a rounded body, silvery-grey back, and a dark (blackish-brown) head. They are known for their bright-orange ear patch and for the bright-pink patch on the mandible, which is larger than that of emperor penguins. They use their white and black flippers, or wings, for swimming and their black feet for walking on land, as they cannot fly. Aptenodytes patagonicus is more slender in the body and has a longer bill than emperor penguins. Their dense plumage protects them from bitter, sub-Antarctic weather and consists of four layers: the outer layer is oily and waterproof and encloses three downy layers for insulation. (King Penguin, 2006; King Penguins - Wildlife of Antarctica - Antactic Connection, ...
The population of Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) in the southern Weddell Sea is in a unique position on the continental shelf edge, with vast shelf waters to the south, and deep Southern Ocean to the north. We describe sex-related differences in the winter distribution of this population, from data collected by 20 conductivity-temperature-depth satellite relay data loggers deployed in February 2011 at the end of the annual molt. The regional daily speed was calculated, and a state-space model was used to estimate behavioral states to positions along individuals tracks. GLMMs estimated that males and smaller individuals, diving in shallower water, traveled less far per day of deployment (males 14.6 ± 2.26 km/d, females 18.9 ± 2.42 km/d), and males were estimated to dive in shallower water (males 604 ± 382 m, females 1,875 ± 1,458 m). Males and smaller individuals were also estimated to be more resident; males spent an average 83.4% ± 7.7% of their time in a resident behavioral ...
