  • GCR TB = 232 Theoretical Bearing of Great Circle route to overwintering sites
  • AS = acceptable sector
  • FS = Forbidden Sector

Notes

  1. All bearings within Acceptable Sector are suitable because followed then will reduce the Great Circle distance to the overwintering sites.
  2. All bearings into the forbidden sector must be avoided because following then increases the Great Circle distance to the overwintering sites.
