Data from: Integrating 3D models with morphometric measurements to improve volumetric estimates in marine mammals

Nathan Hirtle, Julia Stepanuk, Eleanor Heywood, Fredrik Christiansen & Lesley Thorne
1. Studies of body condition are key to understanding the health, bioenergetics, and ecological roles of marine mammals. Due to challenges in studying marine mammals at sea, body condition is often approximated using metrics representing the size of the dorsal surface visible from aerial imagery, but quantifying variability in body volume would enable a more holistic understanding of bioenergetics. Further, the number and location of measurements needed to accurately quantify body condition has received little...
