Data collection was conducted aboard the ship R/V Shearwater as part of the USGS research cruise S-2-07-SC. The San Miguel Passage is within the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, and is the body of water between the two western-most islands of the chain - Santa Rosa and San Miguel Islands.
