    String acquisition_description 
"For mesocosm (large volume) incubation experiments (referred to as
\\u201cLV\\u201d incubations), a 30L Niskin bottle rosette was used to collect
the water. Separate casts were used to collect surface water, bottom water,
and water from the depth at which oxygen showed a minimum, according to the
CTD. From each depth, 20L seawater from single Niskin bottles was dispensed
using cleaned silicon tubing into a single carboy. Prior to filling, carboys
were rinsed 3x with water from the same Niskin bottle used to fill the carboy.
Four carboys were filled at each depth. Triplicate 20L carboys were amended
with ca. 500 mg (exact mass was recorded for each addition) of HMW
Thalassiosira; unamended single carboys were used for controls. All mesocosms
were incubated in the dark at near in-situ temperatures. Mesocosms were sub-
sampled at the start of incubation (0 days), and then after 2 d, 7d, and 16d
for the following assays: bacterial production using 3H-Leucine, dissolved
organic carbon (DOC), nutrients, bacterial cell counts,\\u00a0peptidase and
glucosidase activity measurements. At the 16d subsampling timepoint,
polysaccharide hydrolase activity measurements were initiated, using
fluorescently labeled polysaccharides (Arnosti 2003). These polysaccharide
incubations were sampled at time points of 0, 2, 5, 10, 17, and 30 days (with
the zero-time sample being at the 16-day timepoint of the mesocosm
The hydrolysis of high molecular weight substrate to lower molecular weight
hydrolysis products was measured using gel permeation chromatography with
fluorescence detection, after the method of Arnosti [1996, 2003]. In short,
the subsample was injected onto a series of columns consisting of a 21 cm
column of G50 and a 19 cm column of G75 Sephadex gel. The fluorescence of the
column effluent was measured at excitation and emission wavelengths of 490 and
530 nm, respectively. Hydrolysis rates were calculated from the change in
molecular weight distribution of the substrate over time, as described in
detail in Arnosti [2003].";

"NSF Award Abstract:
Heterotrophic microbial communities are key players in the marine carbon cycle, transforming and respiring organic carbon, regenerating nutrients, and acting as the final filter in sediments through which organic matter passes before long-term burial. Microbially-driven carbon cycling in the ocean profoundly affects the global carbon cycle, but key factors determining rates and locations of organic matter remineralization are unclear. In this study, researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will investigate the ability of pelagic microbial communities to initiate the remineralization of polysaccharides and proteins, which together constitute a major pool of organic matter in the ocean. Results from this study will be predictive on a large scale regarding the nature of the microbial response to organic matter input, and will provide a mechanistic framework for interpreting organic matter reactivity in the ocean.
Broader Impacts: This study will provide scientific training for undergraduate and graduate students from underrepresented groups. The project will also involve German colleagues, thus strengthening international scientific collaboration.";

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.
