Formatted abstract
With the advancement of data recorders, in situ data are extensively collected on freely swimming sea turtles. The data storage capacity, accuracy and resolution of time-depth recorders (TDRs) are continuously improving, resulting in increasingly detailed dive profiles. One method of analysing the vast amount of data obtained by TDRs is to extract the individual dives, where a dive is all consecutive recordings below a certain threshold depth. The dives can then be classified into dive types based on the shape of the time-depth profile. The dive types may not necessarily be mutually exclusive, but can be useful to allow interpretation because they may represent different types of behaviour...

Here I report on two additional distinct dive types, also containing a slow gradual ascent phase, observed in dive profiles from flatback sea turtles (Natator depressus)...
