SBC MBON Data Catalog

This catalog contains data from the Santa Barbara Channel Marine BON (SBC MBON) that are available through public repositories, with DOIs and revision control. Metadata can be browsed and data downloaded with the links below. Most of our datasets are ongoing time-series, and so code should access data through the repository API, so that it can be assured of using most recent revision of any dataset. For information on accessing via repository APIs, contact SBC MBON.

For an overview of SBC MBON's data management and packaging practices see SBC MBON Data Management Overview.

Datasets in public repositories

Biological surveys from deep reefs and oil/gas platforms (Love lab)

Long-term biological surveys on fish and invetebrate from deep natural reefs and the gas and oil platforms in the northern Santa Barbara Channel Islands and Southern California. Shallow water columns (< 20 m ) were surveyed by Scuba and the deep water columns (from 20 m to 400 m) were surveyed using manned submersibles Delta and Dual Deepworker and unmanned Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV).

Ichthyoplankton from CalCOFI (Thompson lab)

Fish larvae counts (or density, as number per 10 m2 of ocean surface) collected in the area of the California Current between San Diego and Avila Beach, California, during the period of 1966 to 2015

Genomics study on 16S primer comparison (Carlson lab)

This project examined the effects of 16S rRNA gene primer selection on population representation and community ecology of bacteria and archaea in the Santa Barbara Channel
