Adelie Penguins Penguins can be found on every continent in the Southern Hemisphere from the tropical Galapagos Islands (the Galapagos penguin) located near South America to Antarctica (the emperor penguin).

Spectral signature lets researchers ID seabirds by poop--by studying the color of seabird guano in the infrared part of the spectrum, researchers were able to identify and isolate penguin and seabird poo's unique spectral signature from bare rocks and snow. Applying this to satellite imagery, the team was able to identify all known major colonies of Adelié penguins, and colonies of several species of seabirds.

Scientists have discovered that penguin and seabird poo (guano) from colonies around the Antarctic Peninsula has a unique spectral signature that can be identified from satellite imagery. The results are published this week .
