The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL access_formats String .htmlTable,.csv,.json,.mat,.nc,.tsv,.esriCsv,.geoJson
attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String Results thus far are based on analysis of video data taken via ROV in sites
both inside and outside the WGOMC. Five sites were investigated in the two
year portion of the WGOMC, with three to five ROV stations/site, and four
sites in the actively trawled Kettle, with three ROV stations/site. All
sessile, or weakly mobile, invertebrates were identified and quantified in
each ROV transect in frames where the ROV was positioned on the bottom. Due to
unequal numbers of frames in some transects, numbers were standardized to 50
frames. Non-parametric multi-dimensional scaling (NMDS) was used to
investigate similarities in epifaunal species diversity and abundances. ANOSIM
analysis found a p-value of 0.08, thus our plot suggests a weakly significant
partitioning between closed and open stations.

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_0_description String Remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) are unoccupied, highly maneuverable underwater robots operated by a person aboard a surface vessel. They are linked to the ship by a group of cables that carry electrical signals back and forth between the operator and the vehicle. Most are equipped with at least a video camera and lights. Additional equipment is commonly added to expand the vehicle’s capabilities. These may include a still camera, a manipulator or cutting arm, water samplers, and instruments that measure water clarity, light penetration, and temperature. More information.

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_1_acronym String SPI Camera
attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_1_dataset_instrument_nid String 5245
attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_1_description String The sediment profile imaging (SPI) system is designed to photograph the sediment-water interface without creating disturbance. A sharp-edged prism cuts cleanly into the sediment to a depth of 15 to 20 cm. The camera is mounted in the top of the prism, and a mirror is used to reflect the sediment image to the camera from the vertical faceplate. Since the sediment is right up against the faceplate, lack of water clarity is never a limitation on this optical method. (from https://www.coast.noaa.gov/benthic/mapping/techniques/sensors/spi.htm)

attribute abundance description String number of organisms per meter squared. This is the corrected number of organisms of a given size class that are in a one meter square area of habitat. This number is derived by multiplying the number from the "number" column by the number of quadrates taken from the original sample and then dividing by the area sampled. Example: If you took a grab sample, split it into four parts and only possessed one of the four sub-samples then you would have to multiply your results by four to see the number for your entire sample.
