These are the raw data used in the multivariable regression approach to identify relationships between Heaviside's dolphin acoustic and surface behaviour. Three surface behavioural states were examined (foraging, 'interacting with the kayak' and socialising) as these were observed significantly more often than any other behaviours. In addition, these data were used to calculate the individual-level production rates of dolphin buzzes during foraging and burst-pulses during socialising across group sizes.
