We use a suite of instruments, most of which are autonomous, to perform long time-series monitoring of the sea floor at Station M, off shore of the California Coast (34.5°N, 123° W).
Sargassum macroalgal rafts in the Sargasso Sea are vital feeding and spawning grounds for pelagic fishes, seabirds, sea turtles and whales. How might changes in ocean conditions and Sargassum habitat impact rafting animals?
