Sampling and Analytical Methodology:\\u00a0
Size frequencies of blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) were measured at three
random sample locations at each of the major mussel beds (stations) along the
eastern Maine coast from Frenchman Bay to the Canadian border. At each sample
location, a 30 cm x 30 cm quadrat was laid down haphazardly in a relatively
dense patch of mussels, and the entirety of the quadrat contents harvested
(byssal thread matrix and soft-sediment included). If <30 individual mussels
were in the quadrat, further samples were taken immediately adjacent to the
original quadrat until 30+ mussels had been harvested. The contents of each
sample was returned to the lab for careful sorting into 5 mm size class bins.
The number of mussels within each size class bin were enumerated and the
frequency of each size class in each sample was calculated yielding three
frequencies per size class per year per mussel population.
Size Class Frequency was calculated as the Count of Individual Mussels within
a particular size class divided by the Total Individual Mussels Sampled within
a plot.";

"Acronym \"MuLTI-2\" (Mussel Larval Transport Initiative-2)
Extracted from the NSF award abstract:
Existing larval transport models focus mainly on along-shelf transport and have done little to explicitly incorporate the effects of cross-shelf mixing and transport processes. Yet cross-shelf transits (both outgoing and incoming legs) are critical components of the dispersal paths of coastal invertebrates. This project will explore the role of cross-shelf mixing in the connectivity of blue mussel populations in eastern Maine. Previous work has shown that the Eastern Maine Coastal Current (EMCC) begins to diverge from shore southwest of the Grand Manan Channel and creates a gradient in cross-shelf mixing and larval transport, with cross-shelf mixing being more common on the northeastern end, episodic in the transitional middle area, and then becoming rare in the southwestern half of the region of the Gulf of Maine. As a result, the investigators predict that northeastern populations of mussels are seeded mostly from up-stream sources, while a significant component of self-seeding (local retention) exists in southwestern populations. Larvae settling in the intervening bays are expected to be derived from a mixture of local and up-stream sources. Using a combined empirical and theoretical approach hydrographic, current profile, and larval vertical migration data will be collected and used to develop and validate a high-resolution coastal circulation model coupled to a model of larval behavior. The investigators will model simulations in different years using the empirical data from mussel reproductive output and spawning times. Connectivity predicted from this model will be then tested against independent empirical estimates of connectivity based on trace element fingerprinting for larvae which can be connected to specific natal habitats. Regions of agreement and discrepancy in the model will be identified to guide additional data collection and model refinement. This iterative process will ensure an understanding of both larval transport patterns and processes, and provide estimates of inter-annual variability in connectivity for blue mussel populations in the Gulf of Maine.";

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.
