Benthic mooring was suspended above the seafloor (~ 30 m depth) by a subsurface buoy. All sensors were deployed at 20 m depth, with the exception of pressure sensors, which were attached to the mooring anchor. Mooring was instrumented with a suite of sensors to record time series of temperature, salinity, pH, and tide. Temperature and salinity were measured using a non-pumped conductivity-temperature (CT) MicroCAT sensor (SBE-37 SM; Sea-Bird Electronics) that sampled at 5-min intervals. Tidal height was measured using water level loggers (Hobo U20-001-03-Ti; Onset) that recorded water pressure at 10-min intervals.
