Usually the seals travel from 20 Km to 148 Km in
about two weeks...
There are some seals travelling a lot like:
Doing 1444 Km!
And 686 Km in 7 minutes!
Averaging 98 Km/h
or 60 miles per hour
(obviously it was an error in the data!)
Some curiosities from the dataset

● How do the GPS errors affect the data? (e.g.
should we ignore small movements? We
ignored too long movements)
