Separate Vacations






Scientific Data Table


On June 4th, 1996, scientists temporarily captured two Osprey mates at their nest in Mutnomah County, Oregon. They named the female X2, and the male X3. Small sensors were placed on the birds that would allow them to be tracked by satellites. Once they were set free again, satellites were then used to determine the location of each bird. Contained in the table on the following page are some of the latitude and longitude readings that were recorded for female X2 and male X3. As you explored in earlier activities, latitude and longitude act like a large grid system that help identify specific locations on a map.
The data in the table indicates the locations of female X2 and male X3 on 15 different days during 1996 and 1997. Whenever possible, data from the exact same day was used in each row. As you will see, however, on certain days, the satellites could only identify the location of one of the birds. When that happened, the next closest data available (usually within a day or two) was used.
After examining the Scientific Data Table below, answer the Separate Vacations "Scientific Data Table Questions".
