Fig. 7. An animation showing variation in predicted density of minke whales at each iteration. All grid squares were predicted to have <0.22 minke whale schools/nm2. The longest axis of the prediction grid (from the southern tip of South America to the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula) is approximately 500 nm long. Areas close to shore, and in the icy waters off the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula were predicted to have high densities of minke whales in each iteration.
