"Methodology from\\u00a0Snyder, J.T.*, Murray, C.S.*, and Baumann, H. (2017)
Potential for maternal effects on offspring CO2-sensitivities in a coastal
marine fish. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology (in press).
Five randomly selected females were strip-spawned onto cutout sections of
window screen (1-mm mesh) that were placed into separate seawater-filled
spawning dishes (Murray et al., 2014). To ensure full fertilization success
and randomize potential paternal effects, eggs were fertilized with a mixture
of milt from 22 males, thus producing full-sib and maternal half-sib embryos
from each female. Adults were measured for total length (TL; mean TLmale =
9.14 cm, mean TLfemale = 10.4 cm) and frozen for later analysis of FA. Mesh
screens with attached embryos were subsequently cut into smaller sections to
allow precise enumeration, and within 2-hr post-fertilization 100 embryos were
placed into each of three replicate rearing containers (20 L) per female and
CO2 treatment (i.e., 600 embryos for each of five females, 3 \\u00d7 100 in
ambient and 3 \\u00d7 100 in acidified treatments). Rearing containers were
filled with 1-um filtered, UV-sterilized seawater (~30 psu) from Long Island
Sound and placed in temperature-controlled water baths set to 24 deg C, the
known thermal optimum for survival and growth in this species (Middaugh et
al., 1987). Offspring were reared for 24 d post fertilization under a 15h
light:9h dark lighting regime. After hatch, larvae were fed ad libitum rations
of newly hatched brine shrimp nauplii Artemia salina (brineshrimpdirect.com),
and 50% of water was replaced every 5 d to ensure safe ammonia levels (< 0.25
ppm). Hatched larvae were counted and subsampled (n = 10 per replicate) at 1 d
post hatch (dph) by gently scooping them into identical 20 L containers, and
final samples were taken at 16 dph. All samples were preserved in 5% buffered
formalin for later measurements of larval standard length (SL, 0.01 mm) via
calibrated digital images (ImagePro Premier, MediaCybernetics). The experiment
thus quantified three related survival and three size traits for each
replicate, female, and CO2 treatment: embryo survival (fertilization to 1
dph), larval survival (1 to 16 dph), overall survival (fertilization to 16
dph), size (SL) at hatch (1 dph), SL at 16 dph, and larval growth rate (GR =
(SL16dph \\u2013 SL1dph)/15).
CO2 regime:\\u00a0
Offspring were reared at ambient (~ 400 uatm, pHNBS = 8.18) and acidified CO2
conditions (~2,300 uatm, pHNBS = 7.50). The higher value was set to a level
commonly used in OA research (consistent with projections of future pCO2
values for open oceans over in the next 200 yr (IPCC, 2007)) and represents
current conditions experienced during seasonal extremes by this species in
nature (Murray et al., 2014). Ambient conditions were achieved by bubbling
partially CO2-stripped air into each rearing container, thereby offsetting
metabolic CO2 accumulation. Acidified conditions were achieved via gas
proportioners (Cole Parmer\\u00ae) that mixed CO2 stripped air with 100% bone-
dry CO2 delivered to the bottom of each rearing container via air stones.
Target pH and temperature were monitored daily via a handheld pH probe
(Hach\\u00ae HQ40d portable meter with a PHC201 standard pH-probe) calibrated
regularly via two-point National Bureau of Standards (NBS) pH buffers
(electronic supplementary material, Fig.S1). To characterize actual pCO2
levels and related water chemistry parameters, water was sampled from four
randomly chosen rearing containers per treatment three times over the course
of the experiment and immediately measured for total alkalinity (AT) via
endpoint titration (Mettler Toledo\\u2122 G20 Potentiometric Titrator). The
instrument has previously been shown to quantify AT in Dr. Andrew
Dickson\\u2019s reference material (batch 147, AT= 2231.39 umol kg seawater-1)
with an average error of 0.6%. Actual levels of total dissolved inorganic
carbon (CT), partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2), fugacity of CO2 (fCO2), and
carbonate ion concentration were calculated in CO2SYS
based on measured AT, pH (NBS), temperature, and salinity using K1 and K2
constants from Mehrbach et al. (1973) refit by Dickson and Millero (1987) and
Dickson (1990) for KHSO4 (Table 1).";

"Description from NSF award abstract:
Coastal marine ecosystems provide a number of important services and resources for humans, and at the same time, coastal waters are subject to environmental stressors such as increases in ocean acidification and reductions in dissolved oxygen. The effects of these stressors on coastal marine organisms remain poorly understood because most research to date has examined the sensitivity of species to one factor, but not to more than one in combination. This project will determine how a model fish species, the Atlantic silverside, will respond to observed and predicted levels of dissolved carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen (O2). Shorter-term experiments will measure embryo and larval survival, growth, and metabolism, and determine whether parents experiencing stressful conditions produce more robust offspring. Longer-term experiments will study the consequences of ocean acidification over the entire life span by quantifying the effects of high-CO2 conditions on the ratio of males to females, lifetime growth, and reproductive investment. These studies will provide a more comprehensive view of how multiple stressors may impact populations of Atlantic silversides and potentially other important forage fish species. This collaborative project will support and train three graduate students at the University of Connecticut and the Stony Brook University (NY), two institutions that attract students from minority groups. It will also provide a variety of opportunities for undergraduates to participate in research and the public to learn about the study, through summer research projects, incorporation in the \"Women in Science and Engineering\" program, and interactive displays of environmental data from monitoring buoys. The two early-career investigators are committed to increasing ocean literacy and awareness of NSF-funded research through public talks and presentations.
This project responds to the recognized need for multi-stressor assessments of species sensitivities to anthropogenic environmental change. It will combine environmental monitoring with advanced experimental approaches to characterize early and whole life consequences of acidification and hypoxia in the Atlantic silverside (Menidia menidia), a valued model species and important forage fish along most of the US east coast. Experiments will employ a newly constructed, computer-controlled fish rearing system to allow independent and combined manipulation of seawater pCO2 and dissolved oxygen (DO) content and the application of static and fluctuating pCO2 and DO levels that were chosen to represent contemporary and potential future scenarios in productive coastal habitats. First CO2, DO, and CO2 � DO dependent reaction norms will be quantified for fitness-relevant early life history (ELH) traits including pre- and post-hatch survival, time to hatch, post-hatch growth, by rearing offspring collected from wild adults from fertilization to 20 days post hatch (dph) using a full factorial design of 3 CO2 � 3 DO levels. Second, the effects of tidal and diel CO2 � DO fluctuations of different amplitudes on silverside ELH traits will be quantified. To address knowledge gaps regarding the CO2-sensitivity in this species, laboratory manipulations of adult spawner environments and reciprocal offspring exposure experiments will elucidate the role of transgenerational plasticity as a potential short-term mechanism to cope with changing environments. To better understand the mechanisms of fish early life CO2-sensitivity, the effects of temperature � CO2 on pre- and post-hatch metabolism will be robustly quantified. The final objective is to rear silversides from fertilization to maturity under different CO2 levels and assess potential CO2-effects on sex ratio and whole life growth and fecundity.

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.
