Support was provided by the Office of Naval Research (Marine Geology and Geophysics and Ocean Modeling and Prediction programs) and the National Science Foundation. Britt Raubenheimer helped to design, deploy, and maintain the sensor arrays, contributed significantly to the data analysis, and provided valuable comments. Staff from the Center for Coastal Studies at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography deployed the arrays and kept them operational despite nearly continuous attacks by kelp in cold water with large waves. Janet Fredericks did the preliminary data processing. Steve Lentz and two anonymous reviewers provided insightful comments on an early draft.
