I am a graduate student at the University of Hawaii and I have been tracking groupers in both Hawaii and Moorea French Polynesia.  I am using ArcView animal movement extension to analyzing my data and was hoping someone could help me with a few questions. 
 I am I am looking at Kernel analysis  and was wondering about ad hoc H values.  When I am comparing kernels for fish from different sites (ex Hawaii and Moorea), should I average the ad hoc H values I get for the sites and use the averaged ad hoc h value for my analysis, as a whole? 
When comparing multiple sites should I average (use a common) h values amongst all sites?   
And if I use a common H value should I average H values or is there a better way to come up with a common H value? 
I am using ad hoc values because my computer freezes every time I try to do least squares regression. 
Any help would be appreciated!!!!
