"Methods reprinted from Barkley et al. 2017:  
Coral collection:\\u00a0Coral plugs were collected in December 2012 from
massive Porites colonies at a naturally low-\\u03a9ar reef site (7.324 N,
134.493 E; mean \\u03a9ar = 2.3; n = 78) and a naturally high-\\u03a9ar reef
site (7.268 N, 134.522 E; mean \\u03a9ar = 3.7; n = 75). At each reef site,
small skeletal cores (diameter = 3.5 cm) were removed from massive colonies
(one core per colony) at 2-3m depth using underwater pneumatic drills, and
cores were cut with a lapidary table saw to approximately 1 cm below the
tissue layer. The plugs were affixed to nylon square base screws with marine
epoxy, secured to egg crate racks, and returned to their original reefs to
allow the corals to recover from the coring procedure. All corals survived two
months of recovery on the reef and on all corals living tissue had fully
overgrown the sides of the plugs so that no underlying skeleton was exposed.
Corals were recovered in February 2013.
Reciprocal transplant experiment:\\u00a0The reciprocal transplant experiment
was conducted concurrently with the CO2 manipulation experiment. Initial
buoyant weight measurements were obtained for all corals prior to
transplantation. Of the corals collected from the low-\\u03a9ar reef and from
the high-\\u03a9ar reef (n = 44 for each reef), approximately half of the
corals in each group was returned to their reef of origin (low-\\u03a9ar to
low-\\u03a9ar: n = 23, high-\\u03a9ar to high-\\u03a9ar: n = 21), while the
remaining corals were transplanted to the opposite reef (low-\\u03a9ar to
high-\\u03a9ar: n = 21, high-\\u03a9ar to low-\\u03a9ar: n = 23). All corals were
transplanted to the same depth (5m). In May 2013, after eight weeks in the
field (and at the end of the CO2 manipulation experiment), approximately half
of the corals from each reef (n = 10-12 per transplant group) were recovered
and weighed. The remaining corals were left out on the two reefs for 17 months
(n = 10-11 per group). In August 2014, these corals were recovered from the
reef.\\u00a0Corals were evaluated for partial or total mortality, and were
judged to be alive (no visible tissue death observed), partially dead (visible
tissue death and/or tissue recession but some living tissue remaining), or
dead (no living tissue remaining). Buoyant weights were collected for all
corals to determine overall calcification rates during the reciprocal
transplant period. Because coral tissue is assumed to be neutrally buoyant
(i.e. it does not contribute to buoyant weight measurements) and the timing of
tissue death during the 17-month transplant was unknown, the overall change in
skeletal mass was calculated and reported for all corals regardless of
mortality status.";

"text copied from the NSF award abstract: 
Much of our understanding of the impact of ocean acidification on coral reef calcification comes from laboratory manipulation experiments in which reef organisms are removed from their natural habitat and reared under conditions of calcium carbonate saturation (Omega) predicted for the tropical oceans at the end of this century. By comparison, there is a paucity of in situ data describing the sensitivity of coral reef ecosystems to changes in calcium carbonate saturation. Yet emerging evidence suggests there may be critical differences between the calcification response of organisms in culture and the net calcification response of a coral reef ecosystem, to the same degree of change in calcium carbonate saturation. In the majority of cases, the sensitivity of net reef calcification to changing calcium carbonate saturation is more severe than laboratory manipulation experiments predict. Clearly, accurate predictions of the response of coral reef ecosystems to 21st century ocean acidification will depend on a robust characterization of ecosystem-scale responses and an understanding of the fundamental processes that shape them. Using existing data, the investigators show that the sensitivity of coral reef ecosystem calcification to Delta calcium carbonate saturation conforms to the empirical rate equation R=k(Aragonite saturation state -1)n, which also describes the relationship between the rate of net abiogenic CaCO3 precipitation (R) and the degree of Aragonite supersaturation (Aragonite saturation state-1). By implication, the net ecosystem calcification (NEC) response to ocean acidification is governed by fundamental laws of physical chemistry and is potentially predictable across space and time. When viewed this way, the existing, albeit sparse, dataset of NEC reveals distinct patterns that, if verified, have important implications for how different coral reef ecosystems will respond to 21st century ocean acidification. The investigators have outlined a research program designed to build on this proposition. The project expands the currently sparse dataset of ecosystem-scale observations at four strategically placed reef sites: 2 sites in the Republic of Palau, Caroline Islands, Micronesia, western Pacific Ocean; a third at Dongsha Atoll, Pratas Islands, South China Sea; and the fourth at Kingman Reef, US Northern Line Islands, 6 deg. 23 N, 162 deg. 25 W.  The four selected sites will allow investigators to test the following hypotheses: (1) The sensitivity (\"n\" in the rate equation) of coral reef ecosystem calcification to Delta Aragonite saturation state decreases with decreasing Aragonite saturation state. By implication, the rate at which reef calcification declines will slow as ocean acidification progresses over the course of this century. (2) The energetic status of the calcifying community is a key determinant of absolute rates of net ecosystem calcification (\"k\" in the rate equation), which, combined with n, defines the Aragonite saturation state value at which NEC approaches zero. By implication, the shift from net calcification to net dissolution will be delayed in healthy, energetically replete coral reef ecosystems and accelerated in perturbed, energetically depleted ecosystems. and (3) The calcification response of individual colonies of dominant reef calcifiers (corals and algae) is weaker than the measured ecosystem-scale response to the same change in Aragonite saturation state. By implication, processes not adequately captured in laboratory experiments, such as bioerosion and dissolution, will play an important role in the coral reef response to ocean acidification.
Broader Impacts: Ocean acidification threatens the livelihoods of 500 million people worldwide who depend on coral reefs to provide habitable and agricultural land, food, building materials, coastal protection and income from tourism. Yet data emerging from ocean acidification (OA) studies point to critical gaps in our knowledge of reef ecosystem-scale responses to OA that currently limit our ability to predict the timing and severity of its impact on different reefs in different parts of the world. Using existing data generated by the investigators and others, this project will address a series of related hypotheses, which, if verified by the research, will have an immediate, direct impact on predictions of coral reef resilience in a high CO2 world. This project brings together expertise in coral reef biogeochemistry, chemical oceanography and physical oceanography to focus on a problem that has enormous societal, economic and conservation relevance. In addition to sharing the resultant data via BCO-DMO, project data will also be contributed to the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC) data collection hosted at the PANGAEA Open Access library (http://www.pangaea.de).";

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.
