"SAFe reference samples:  
 During the SAFe (Sampling and Analysis of Fe) program and the North Atlantic
and North Pacific GEOTRACES Intercalibration cruises, we (Geoffrey Smith and
Ken Bruland) collected large volumes of homogenized surface and deep seawater
to provide 0.5 L SAFe reference samples to researchers investigating the
marine chemistry of trace metals in both the U.S. and international trace
metal communities. Surface seawater was collected using the UCSC designed
\\\"GeoFish\\\" towed sampling system, filtered as described below and then
homogenized in two 500 L SAFe tanks. Water from 1000 m was collected with
multiple four-bottle casts using our Teflon coated, 30 L, GOFlo samplers
deployed on Kevlar hydroline (Bruland et al. 1979), filtered and then
homogenized in one of the SAFe tanks. Our GeoFish/SAFe tank system consists of
PFA Teflon tubing, an all PFA Teflon diaphragm pump, sequential filtration
through 0.45 \\u00b5m then 0.2 \\u00b5m pore size polycarbonate, track etched
(PCTE) pleated filter cartridges and two 500 L fluorinated low density
polyethylene tanks connected with all Teflon tubing, valves and fittings. All
filtrations, acidifications and bottling of the SAFe samples were performed
inside of Class-100 clean benches in a portable clean van. We successfully
collected and continue to provide to an international trace metal community
650 SAFe S reference samples of surface water, 650 SAFe D1 reference samples
of 1000 meter depth water, and 650 SAFe D2 reference samples of 1000 meter
depth water. These samples have been stored in rigorously acid cleaned LDPE
bottles for over four years and have proven stable for dissolved Fe and other
trace metals. These SAFe reference samples are now proving to be valuable for
a suite of GEOTRACES key and non-key trace metals.
 GEOTRACES reference samples:  
 A variety of GEOTRACES reference samples are also available. We used the
SAFe tank system on the North Atlantic GEOTRACES Intercalibration cruise to
collect an additional set of North Atlantic GEOTRACES reference samples from
the surface and from a depth of 2000 meters. The surface reference sample (GS)
was collected with the GeoFish sampling system in the same manner as for SAFe
S samples, while the 2000 m deep reference sample (GD) was collected with 5
separate casts of the GEOTRACES rosette to rinse and fill a tank.
During the Pacific GEOTRACES Intercalibration cruise, we used the GeoFish/SAFe
tank system to collect additional Pacific surface water from the SAFe site to
be used as GEOTRACES surface Pacific (GSP) reference samples (~300 0.5 L
bottles). Additionally, we collected a surface tank from the highly productive
surface waters of the Santa Barbara Basin coastal site on the Pacific
Intercalibration cruise and aliquoted ~600 0.5 L samples of this water as a
SAFe/GEOTRACES coastal surface reference sample, \\\"SGC\\\".";

"Much of this text appeared in an article published in OCB News, October 2008, by the OCB Project Office.
The first U.S. GEOTRACES Atlantic Section will be specifically centered around a sampling cruise to be carried out in the North Atlantic in 2010. Ed Boyle (MIT) and Bill Jenkins (WHOI) organized a three-day planning workshop that was held September 22-24, 2008 at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The main goal of the workshop, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. GEOTRACES Scientific Steering Committee, was to design the implementation plan for the first U.S. GEOTRACES Atlantic Section. The primary cruise design motivation was to improve knowledge of the sources, sinks and internal cycling of Trace Elements and their Isotopes (TEIs) by studying their distributions along a section in the North Atlantic (Figure 1). The North Atlantic has the full suite of processes that affect TEIs, including strong meridional advection, boundary scavenging and source effects, aeolian deposition, and the salty Mediterranean Outflow. The North Atlantic is particularly important as it lies at the \"origin\" of the global Meridional Overturning Circulation.
It is well understood that many trace metals play important roles in biogeochemical processes and the carbon cycle, yet very little is known about their large-scale distributions and the regional scale processes that affect them. Recent advances in sampling and analytical techniques, along with advances in our understanding of their roles in enzymatic and catalytic processes in the open ocean provide a natural opportunity to make substantial advances in our understanding of these important elements. Moreover, we are motivated by the prospect of global change and the need to understand the present and future workings of the ocean's biogeochemistry. The GEOTRACES strategy is to measure a broad suite of TEIs to constrain the critical biogeochemical processes that influence their distributions. In addition to these \"exotic\" substances, more traditional properties, including macronutrients (at micromolar and nanomolar levels), CTD, bio-optical parameters, and carbon system characteristics will be measured. The cruise starts at Line W, a repeat hydrographic section southeast of Cape Cod, extends to Bermuda and subsequently through the North Atlantic oligotrophic subtropical gyre, then transects into the African coast in the northern limb of the coastal upwelling region. From there, the cruise goes northward into the Mediterranean outflow. The station locations shown on the map are for the \"fulldepth TEI\" stations, and constitute approximately half of the stations to be ultimately occupied.

Hydrography, CTD and nutrient measurements will be supported by the Ocean Data Facility (J. Swift) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and funded through NSF Facilities. They will be providing an additional CTD rosette system along with nephelometer and LADCP. A trace metal clean Go-Flo Rosette and winch will be provided by the group at Old Dominion University (G. Cutter) along with a towed underway pumping system.
The North Atlantic Transect cruise began in 2010 with KN199 leg 4 (station sampling) and leg 5 (underway sampling only) (Figure 2).

The red line shows the cruise track for the first leg of the US Geotraces North Atlantic Transect on the R/V Knorr in October 2010.  The rest of the stations (beginning with 13) will be completed in October-December 2011 on the R/V Knorr (courtesy of Bill Jenkins, Chief Scientist, GNAT first leg).

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.
