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 The OIMB pier is located on the Oregon Coast, Coos Bay entrance
(43\u00a020.978'N, 124 19.795'W).

Daily samples of oceanic water were collected approx. 30 minutes before high
tide (early morning to late afternoon) with an electric (220V) diaphragm pump
(American Machine Self Priming Pump, Model 335E-K6, 3\" diameter with a 2hp
motor). Salinity, water temperature, and fluorescence were measured for water
in the daily pier samples. Tide height was assumed from predictions of Mr
Tides (url: [http://www.mrtides.com/](\\"http://www.mrtides.com/\\"); site:
Coos Bay entrance, Oregon); Wind stress and wave height were calculated from
NOAA buoy Station 46015 (off Port Orford, Oregon).

Sampling dates:
2016: Data are reported\u00a0from 1/4/2016 to 3/18/2016 (75 days).\u00a0
2015:\u00a0Data are reported from 1/6/2015 to 3/19/2015 (73 days).
2014:\u00a0Data are reported from 1/1/2014 to 3/20/2014 (79 days).

Note: The 2014 and 2015 data report chlorophyll-a in milligrams per cubic

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_3_dataset_instrument_nid String 682566
attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_3_description String A refractometer is a laboratory or field device for the measurement of an index of refraction (refractometry). The index of refraction is calculated from Snell's law and can be calculated from the composition of the material using the Gladstone-Dale relation.

In optics the refractive index (or index of refraction) n of a substance (optical medium) is a dimensionless number that describes how light, or any other radiation, propagates through that medium.

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_3_supplied_name String refractometer
attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_4_dataset_instrument_nid String 682568
attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_4_description String A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance varies significantly with temperature, more so than in standard resistors. The word is a portmanteau of thermal and resistor. Thermistors are widely used as inrush current limiters, temperature sensors, self-resetting overcurrent protectors, and self-regulating heating elements.

Thermistors differ from resistance temperature detectors (RTD) in that the material used in a thermistor is generally a ceramic or polymer, while RTDs use pure metals. The temperature response is also different; RTDs are useful over larger temperature ranges, while thermistors typically achieve a higher precision within a limited temperature range, typically 90C to 130C.

attribute NC_GLOBAL project String Storm larvae
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_acronym String Storm larvae
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String The study will address four questions concerning invertebrate spawning on the US West Coast: 1) Which nearshore benthic invertebrates spawn during winter? 2) What conditions are associated with spawning events? (Preliminary data lead the PIs to predict that most spawning will occur during periods of large waves and coastal downwelling.) 3) What is the pattern of dispersal of these winter-spawned larvae in the coastal ocean? 4) How do variations in ocean conditions during pelagic development affect delivery of larvae to the shore?
Water will be sampled daily from the seawater intake for the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology marine laboratory in Coos Bay, OR. Water is pumped at high tide when the intake samples coastal ocean water. Early larval stages will be identified by genetic barcoding and a visual ID key will be developed from individuals raised in the lab. Time series analysis will be used to test for the effects of oceanographic parameters (e.g., temperature, salinity, Chl-a, wind stress, and wave data) on spawning events indicated by the sudden appearance of zygotes or embryos. Following a spawning event, oceanographic cruises in the coastal ocean will follow the dispersal and pelagic development of the larvae and relate their distribution to coastal hydrodynamics. Using daily samples from the seawater system and settlement collectors at intertidal sample sites, the PIs will monitor the abundance of late stage larvae in the near-shore and settlement in the intertidal zone. These time series will be compared to hydrographic parameters to identify conditions favoring the maintenance of larvae in the waters adjacent to the coast and the delivery of larvae to the shore.
