    String acquisition_description 
"Depth, Temperature, salinity and in situ chlorophyll a salinity were recorded
during the cruise from the real-time CTD data feed, recorded in log books.
Complete CTD cast records are included as an independent dataset associated
with this deployment. Surface values were recorded during the period when the
CTD rosette entered the water and were logged once values had stabilized. Near
bottom values were logged when CTD had reached its maximum deployment depth
and values stabilized.
 
Extracted chlorophyll a and phaeophytin values were determined following
overnight extraction in 90% acetone essentially as described by Parsons et al.
(1984) after filtering 100 \\u2013 250 ml of water sample through either 0.2
microns (total) or 8 microns (> 8 microns) polycarbonate membrane filters.
Filtrations were conducted in a darkened room. Filtration times were kept to
less than 20 minutes per sample and less than 10 mm Hg vacuum. Following
filtration, filters were placed directly into clean extraction tubes and
stored frozen at -20\\u00baC. Filters were extracted and analyzed within one
week of collection. Fluorescence was measured using a 10AU Turner Designs
fluorometer that was calibrated regularly using a chlorophyll standard
solution (Sigma Chl std cat #C6144 \\u2013 1 mg). Standard curves were prepared
as a 12-point dilution series from 0.05 \\u2013 500 micrograms L-1.
 
Water particulate organic matter (POC and PON) concentrations and isotopic
composition were estimated from water samples (200 \\u2013 500 ml) filtered
through pre-combusted Whatman GF/F filters. Filters were dried and stored at
60 deg.C until analysis.
 
Organic matter (C and N) isotopic composition of animals was also estimated.
Individual animals were placed in 8x10 mm tin cups (Elemental Microanalysis)
with a minimum of fluid, and dried at 60\\u00baC for at least 48 hours prior to
analysis. Samples were stored in 48-well plates at 60\\u00baC prior to final
preparation.
 
Sample analysis for %C, % N, d13C and d15N were performed on a ThermoFisher
Delta V plus isotope ratio mass spectrometer interfaced to a Thermo Flash
Elemental analyzer (Fry 1992). Isotopic and elemental composition calibrations
were performed using commercially available powdered chitin (Sigma Chemical),
which in turn had been calibrated against a variety of international (USGS 40
Glutamic Acid) and commercial (Elemental Microanalysis B2151 and B2155)
isotopic and compositional standards. Chitin standards were run at the start
of each analysis across the range of C amounts anticipated to be present in
the samples, and every 10 samples as a drift check.";

"Project description from NSF award abstract:
Gelatinous (soft-bodied) zooplankton can play a crucial role in food webs and in cycling of materials in the world's oceans, and it has been suggested that they may become even more important in the future. However, because they are so difficult to study, gelatinous species remain poorly understood. This is especially true for smaller filter feeding gelatinous animals such as pelagic tunicates (salps, larvaceans, and doliolids). For example, it remains unclear what and how much these abundant filter feeders eat in nature and who eats them. This project will address this large and significant knowledge gap by using a combination of new and traditional methods to investigate the diet of the gelatinous pelagic tunicate Dolioletti gegenbauri, a species common on productive continental shelves such as the South Atlantic Bight. This project will also help train the next generation of ocean scientists to be competent in classical biology, modern molecular biology, and ecosystem modeling. Training will also focus on increasing representation of African Americans in the future science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) workforce.
This study will provide the first quantitative estimates of the in situ diet of a key continental shelf gelatinous zooplankton species, the doliolid Dolioletta gegenbauri. Large blooms of doliolids have the potential to control the trophic structure of shelf pelagic ecosystems by shunting primary production to the microbial food web and by limiting copepod production via the consumption of their eggs. The long-term objective is to understand the ecological role and significance of doliolids in continental shelf pelagic ecosystems, specifically the underlying processes that lead to their high level of spatial and temporal patchiness. The basic questions to be addressed here include: What do doliolids eat, in situ, at different life stages? Are early life stages of larger metazoans important components of their diets? Do doliolids act as trophic cascade agents promoting primary production and phytoplankton diversity? Because of methodological challenges, there have not yet been definitive studies addressing these fundamental questions. In this project, the investigators will conduct field-based studies that will combine state-of-the art molecular techniques with more traditional methods in zooplankton ecology to answer questions about trophic interactions. Monthly oceanographic expeditions in the South Atlantic Bight will allow the research team to study wild doliolids at different time points in their life cycle and under different plankton bloom conditions. Application of recently developed molecular diagnostic assays will enable the quantitative description of the diversity and quantity of prey consumed, unbiased by experimental manipulation. Additional experimental and theoretical modeling will allow the investigators to link these data with larger ecological significance and scale.";

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
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/datasetID.fileType{?query}
For example,
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/pmelTaoDySst.htmlTable?longitude,latitude,time,station,wmo_platform_code,T_25&time>=2015-05-23T12:00:00Z&time<=2015-05-31T12:00:00Z
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.
