cosine response for oblique rays. The Eppley Precision Spectral Pyranometer (PSP) is primarily used where high accuracy is required or where it is used to calibrate other pyranometers.  The PSP outputs a low level voltage ranging from 0 to a maximum of about 12mV depending on sensor calibration and  radiation level.   An instruction manual provided by Eppley contains the sensor calibration constant and serial number.  The Precision Spectral Pyranometer is a World Meteorological Organization First Class Radiometer and comes with a calibration certificate traceable to the World Radiation Reference and a temperature compensation curve.

"The Antarctic salp, Salpa thompsoni, is an increasingly important player in the vulnerable Antarctic Peninsula pelagic ecosystem. Observations of high abundance of Salpa thompsoni during the summer in the Southern Ocean suggest that this species is capable of rapid somatic and population growth, and frequently forms dense blooms under favorable environmental conditions. The proposed research will examine genome-wide patterns of gene expression, target gene expression levels, and patterns of population genetic diversity and structure of the target salp species. Our preliminary results and data analysis have provided a promising basis for transcriptomic studies of S. thompsoni in the Southern Ocean. The proposed next steps in our genomic/transcriptomic analysis of Salpa thompsoni are: 1) completion of a reference transcriptome as a basis for genome-wide analysis of gene expression; 2) whole transcriptome shotgun sequencing (RNA-Seq) analysis to characterize gene expression in relation to individual characteristics and environmental conditions; 3) quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) characterization and validation of gene expression for 10-20 top differentially-expressed genes; and 4) detection of strand-specific allelic variation at SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphic) sites to analyze clonal diversity and population genetic diversity and structure. We hypothesize that: 1) deep analysis of the Salpa thompsoni transcriptome will reveal significant associations among selected set of differentially-expressed genes and critical life history stages and events (e.g., ontogenetic maturation, sexual reproduction, senescence) of the salp; and 2) the species will show variable levels of clonal diversity and significant genetic differentiation among salp populations in different regions of the Southern Ocean. Samples will be obtained from research cruises during 2011-2013 in diverse regions of the Southern Ocean; dedicated sample and data collection will be carried out during a cruise of the R/V LM GOULD (LMG11-10) to the Western Antarctic Peninsula region in November, 2011. The significance of this effort lies in new understanding of the molecular processes underlying the complex life history and population dynamics of S. thompsoni in relation to the Antarctic pelagic ecosystem and extreme and variable environmental conditions of the Southern Ocean.

Using tabledap to Request Data and Graphs from Tabular Datasets

tabledap lets you request a data subset, a graph, or a map from a tabular dataset (for example, buoy data), via a specially formed URL. tabledap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its selection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

Tabledap request URLs must be in the form
For example,
Thus, the query is often a comma-separated list of desired variable names, followed by a collection of constraints (e.g., variable<value), each preceded by '&' (which is interpreted as "AND").

For details, see the tabledap Documentation.
