Data collected from the oxidation-reduction probe (ORP sensor) illustrates reducing environments (red) located around the mussel bed. These areas often correspond to low oxygen conditions around active seepage. Data collected from these sensors, combined with the high resolution maps (Figure x) and imagery, help us understand the spatial extent of seep communities and their associated environmental conditions.
