"'During the IIOE, zooplankton collections were made between 25 degrees N and
45 degrees S latitude and 30 to 120 degrees E longitude. Sampling covered the
entire Indian Ocean, with better coverage north of 10 degrees S latitude.
Though 1927 samples were collected during IIOE, zooplankton data for 1548
standard hauls were considered to be comparable and these alone were utilized
for all publications. A standard haul is defined as an Indian Ocean Standard
net collection of zooplankton in the water column under 1 square meter.'
(Nair, 2005)
When the depth of the water exceeded 200 meters, the net was hauled from a
depth of 200 meters to the surface. In shallower waters, the net was operated
from the bottom to the surface. The material studied was collected during both
day and night. (Pillai, 1973)
'The samples were then to be preserved in 10% formalin neutralized with
hexamethylenetetramine...The samples would then be sent to the Sorting Centre
for further processing.' (Hansen, 1966)

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.
