"Coral collection and processing
Coral fragments were collected by a scuba diver using a hammer and chisel
during field sampling trips to Kapangamarangi Atoll, Micronesia (November
2012), Florida Keys, U.S.A. (May 2013) and Magnetic Bay, Australia (November
2013). Fragments were stored in a cooler containing ice until they were flash
frozen in liquid nitrogen. Fragments were obtained from 3 representative
colonies of the following species:
Orbicella\\u00a0faveolata, Montastraea\\u00a0cavernosa,
O.\\u00a0annularis,\\u00a0and\\u00a0Diploria\\u00a0strigosa.\\u00a0Fragments were

"Description from NSF award abstract:
Reef-building corals are in decline worldwide due in part to climate change and other human activities, and it is becoming increasingly important to understand what aspects of coral biology are degraded by environmental stress which then leads to coral mortality. It is now widely known that corals harbor communities of bacteria and archaea that are believed to play important roles in maintaining the health of their hosts, but we lack any appreciable understanding about the identity of the microbial associates regularly residing within healthy, reef-building corals. This project asks the central question: do reef-building corals harbor fundamental or persistent microbial associates that are symbiotic within their tissues? In order to address this hypothesis, the investigator will assess the identity of the bacterial and archaeal microbes using a variety of molecular and microscopy approaches that includes the identification and localization of a widespread group of coral bacterial associates belonging to the genus Endozoicomonas. The results of this study will then be used to develop additional questions about the role of these microbial associates in nutrient cycling and how they contribute to the health and survival of corals.";

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.
