Several studies have developed photogrammetric techniques for indirect mass estima- tion of seals. Unfortunately, these techniques are often narrowly delineated for specific field scenar- ios or species. Many require sophisticated, custom-designed equipment or analytical tools, limiting their applicability. We aimed to devise a photogrammetric technique for accurate volume/mass esti- mation of seals under a variety of field scenarios without manipulation of the animal and with mini- mal… CONTINUE READING
