A box core was used to sample sediments from the Santa Barbara Basin off the coast of California in October 2010 during the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Cal-Echoes research cruise (fig. S1), at 34°17.228′N, 120°02.135′W, at a water depth of approximately 580 m. Site 1, the site of the box core MV1012-ST46.9-BC1 (BC1), was chosen as a reoccupation of Ocean Drilling Program Site 893.
