Oceanographic data collected during the Davidson Seamount 2002 expedition on the RV Western Flyer, in the North Pacific Ocean, southwest of Monterey, California from May 17, 2002 - May 24, 2002 (NCEI Accession 0072306)

This spring, scientists explored the first "undersea island" to be called a seamount. Davidson seamount, located 120 km Southwest of Monterey, California, is one of the largest known seamounts in U.S. waters. Although these geological features have been known about for quite some time, only recent technological advances allow for comprehensive studies.

The exploration team was led by scientists from the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Collaborators included the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
