Boosted regression trees were used to model the relationships between available remote-sensed environmental data and sightings data of four petrels in the Ross Sea area: Antarctic, snow petrel, cape, and southern giant petrel. The distribution of each species was influenced by different variables, with distance from shelf break most important for Antarctic petrels; average surface temperature for snow petrels; ice cover for cape petrels; and chlorophyll summer maxima for southern giant petrels.
