How wandering albatrosses use weather systems to fly long distances. 2. The use of eastward-moving cold fronts from Antarctic lows to travel westwards across the Indian Ocean / M.D. Murray, D.G. Nicholls, E. Butcher, P.J. Moors.

Abstract: Shows how two Diomedea exulans gibsoni flying between latitudes 30° S and 50° S used typical Southern Ocean winds associated with cold fronts derived from intense Antarctic lows between 50° S and 60° S to fly westwards. Most flight paths tacked across winds, with forward flight being maintained within arc of 110-170° from direction of following winds. Using south-west winds behind cold fronts birds flew to north-west and when ahead of easterly moving high used east-north-east winds to north of high to continue westerly movement.
