"Using a small boat, samples were collected in 20L carboys in Tylerfjord-Young
Sound. Three rivers that feed into Tyrolerfjord-Young Sound (Tyroler River,
Lerbugten River and Zackenberg River) were sampled; surface and subsurface
water samples were also collected at transition sites where the rivers feed
into the fjord (Tyro_01, Zac_30, Ler_30, altogether referred to as \\u2018river
transition sites\\u2019). Enzyme activities were measured in unfiltered water.
In addition, water was size-fractionated using gravity filtration through a
GF/A filter to capture \\u22651.6 \\u00b5m particles.
Two substrates, a-glucose and b-glucose linked to a 4-methylumbelliferyl (MUF)
fluorophore, were used to measure glucosidase activities. Five substrates
linked to a 7-amido-4-methyl coumarin (MCA) fluorophore, one amino acid \\u2013
leucine \\u2013 and four oligopeptides \\u2013 the chymotrypsin substrates
alanine-alanine-phenylalanine (AAF) and alanine-alanine-proline-phenylalanine
(AAPF), and the trypsin substrates glutamine-alanine-arginine (QAR) and
phenylalanine-serine-arginine (FSR) \\u2013 were used to measure exo- and endo-
acting peptidase activities, respectively. Hydrolysis rates of the substrates
were measured as an increase in fluorescence as the fluorophore was hydrolyzed
from the substrate over time [as in Hoppe, 1993; Obayashi and Suzuki, 2005].
\\u00a0All substrates were used to measure enzyme activities in unfiltered
water, as well as particle-associated (\\u22651.6 \\u00b5m) enzymatic
In unfiltered water, enzyme activities were measured by adding 4 mL of water
to triplicate cuvettes. One incubation containing autoclaved water served as
the killed control. This procedure was applied to each of the 7 substrates and
one live blank and autoclave blank (no substrate addition). Each cuvette
containing either live or autoclaved water was amended with one substrate to a
concentration of 100 \\u00b5M. Fluroescence was measured using a Promega
Quanti\\ufb02uor solid-state single-cuvette \\ufb02uorimeter; excitation and
emission maxima were 365 nm and 410\\u2013450 nm, respectively,
To measure particle-associated enzyme assays, 1/12th piece of a GF/A filter
through which water had been gravity filtered was put into a cuvette
containing 4 mL of cooled, autoclaved water from the same station/depth as the
live samples. In addition, killed controls were set up using sterile GF/A
filters cut into 1/12th pieces. Bulk water and particle-associated enzyme
assays were incubated for up to 24 and 16 hours, respectively; timepoints were
taken at specific intervals. Incubations were kept in the dark either at
0\\u00b0C, 5\\u00b0C, or 8\\u00b0C, depending on in situ water temperature at the
time of sampling.
Activities of polysaccharide hydrolases were measured using fluorescently
labeled polysaccharides (Arnosti 2003). Activities of enzymes that hydrolyze
pullulan, laminarin, xylan, fucoidan, arabinogalactan, and chondroitin sulfate
were measured in unfiltered water, and using GF/A filters through which water
had been gravity-filtered. For these measurements, substrate was added (of 3.5
\\u00b5M monomer equivalent) to 15 mL of water; autoclaved ambient water served
as the killed control. Particle-associated activities were measured by
submerging 1/12th of a GF/A filter in 15 ml autoclaved seawater. Samples were
incubated in the dark at near in situ temperature (0\\u00b0C, 5\\u00b0C, or
8\\u00b0C), and sub-sampled at specific time intervals\\u2014t0 (0h, upon
substrate addition), t1 (120 h), t2 (240 h), t3 (360 h) and t4 (600 h). Sub-
samples from each timepoint were filtered using 0.2 \\u00b5M pore size SFCA
(surfactant-free cellulose acetate) syringe filters, and the filtrate was
collected in tubes and frozen at -20\\u00b0C until processing in the lab. Sub-
samples were processed using gel permeation chromatography (Arnosti,

"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.
