These data were used in the statistical analyses presented in the PLoS ONE paper "Spatial and temporal patterns of sound production in East Greenland narwhals".
Please consult the paper for the methodology. The database includes 6 columns with the following information:

Datetime: date and time.
Ind: individual, by name (see paper).
Depth: diving depth, in meters. Negative depths are considered surface.
Area: in which of the four areas defined in the paper (F = Fønfjord, O or Ø = Øfjord, G = Gåsefjord, and OG = Outer Gåsefjord) the subject was found
Buzz: 1 if a terminal buzz was begun at that time by the whale carrying the tag, 0 otherwise.
Call: 1 if a call was begun at that time by the whale carrying the tag or another whale, 0 otherwise.

Permission for capturing, handling, and tagging of narwhals was provided by the Government of Greenland (Case ID 2010-035453, document number 429 926). The project was reviewed and approved by the IACUC of the University of Copenhagen (17 June 2015). Access and permits to use land facilities in Scoresby Sound were provided by the Government of Greenland.
