"Dissolved oxygen; Acquired with Sea-Bird Scientific SBE 63 Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensor. Dissolved oxygen concentration [umol/kg] was calculated and corrected for salinity and pressure effects according to the 2016 Argo recommendations for processing of dissolved oxygen data (Thierry et al. 2016). As per these recommendations, an initial pressure correction was made to the raw measured oxygen phase delay Phi�[usec] according to Bittig et al. 2015:
����������������� Phi adj�= Phi raw�+ Pcoef1�* P / 1000
where Pcoef1�= 0.115 usec and P [dbar] is the collocated SBE 41CP CTD pressure measurement. The adjusted oxygen phase delay [usec] was then converted to voltage by applying the factory conversion:
����������������� V = Phiadj�/ 39.457071
Uncorrected dissolved oxygen concentration [mL/L] was calculated by applying the factory calibration:
����������������� Oxygen_uncorr�[mL/L] = {(A0 + A1*T + A2*V2) / (B0 + B1*V) - 1.0} / (C0 + C1*T + C2*T2)
where T is SBE 63 temperature [deg C] and V is adjusted SBE 63 phase delay [V]. The oxygen calibration coefficients (A0, A1, A2, B0, B1, C0, C1, C2) are provided in Table 1. Dissolved oxygen concentration [mL/L] was then corrected for salinity and pressure effects according to the 2016 Argo recommendations.
����������������� Oxygen_corr�[mL/L] = Oxygenun corr�[mL/L] * Scorr�* Pcorr
where
����������������� Scorr�= A(T,S,Spreset)�* exp(S*(SolB0�+ SolB1*Ts�+ SolB2*Ts2�+ SolB3*Ts3) + SolC0*S2)
����������������� A(T,S,Spreset)�= (1013.25 -�pH2O(T,Spreset)) / (1013.25 -�pH2O(T,S))
������������������pH2O = 1013.25 * exp(D0�+ D1*(100 / (T + 273.15)) + D2*ln((T + 273.15) / 100) + D3*S)
����������������� Spreset�= 0
����������������� TS�=�ln�[(298.15 - T) / (273.15 + T)]
T and S are the collocated temperature and salinity measurements from the SBE 41CP CTD, respectively. Salinity correction coefficients are from Benson and Krause 1984 (SolB0�= -6.24523e-3, SolB1�= -7.37614e-3, SolB2�= -1.03410e-3, SolB3�= -8.17083e-3, SolC0�= -4.88682e-7) and�pH2O coefficients are from Weiss and Price 1980 (D0�= 24.4543, D1�= -67.4509, D2�= -4.8489, D3�= -5.44e-4). The pressure correction factor Pcorr�is calculated as outlined in Bittig et al. 2015 as
����������������� Pcorr�= 1 + (Pcoef2�* T + Pcoef3) * P / 1000
with Pcoef2�= 0.00022 and Pcoef3�= 0.0419. Dissolved oxygen concentration [mL/L] was converted to dissolved oxygen concentration [umol/kg]:
����������������� Oxygen [umol/kg] = Oxygen [mL/L] * (44.6596 umol/mL) / (ρTheta/1000)
where ρθ�is the potential density of seawater [kg/m3] at zero pressure and the potential temperature calculated from collocated SBE 41CP CTD salinity, temperature, and pressure measurements using the pden function in the SEAWATER Matlab library (Morgan and Pender 1993). The value of 44.6596 umol/mL is derived from the molar volume of oxygen gas at standard temperature and pressure, 22.3916 L/mole (e.g., Garc�a and Gordon 1992).

"Multiple deployments of two Sea-Bird Scientific Navis BGCi floats (numbers
F033 and F034) equipped with CTDs, transmissometers, O2 optodes,
backscattering (700 nm), fluorescence (chlorophyll, colored dissolved organic
matter), and tilt sensors were conducted between July 2013 and November 2014
in conjunction with Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study cruises. Short-term
deployments (1.5 \\u2013 3 days) followed by recovery of the floats were
conducted during four monthly BATS cruises in July \\u2013 October 2013 and one
cruise in March 2014. Both floats were deployed during the July and August
2013 cruises and float F034 was deployed for the remaining cruises. Each float
collected one profile per cruise with the exception of the August 2013 cruise,
during which the two floats together collected 13 profiles. During short-term
deployments, floats first completed an initial descent and ascent without
parking, then completed 1 or 2 more profile cycles with different, consecutive
target depths. Following the initial descent/ascent described above, the
short-term profile cycles were structured as described below for long-term
deployments. In addition to the short-term cruise deployments, F033 profiled
continuously from October 2013 until early April 2014, yielding 77 profiles,
and F034 profiled continuously from March 2014 until late November 2014,
yielding 139 profiles. During these long-term deployments, a typical cycle
consisted of 1) the descent to the target park depth, 2) a park phase at the
target depth lasting 1.5 \\u2013 2.5 days during which measurements are made
every 15 minutes, 3) a descent to 1000 dbar, 4) an ascent to the surface
during which measurements are made, and 5) a surface telemetry phase, during
which a GPS fix is obtained, data are uploaded via Iridium, and instructions
for the next cycle are downloaded. During long-term deployments, floats cycled
through park phases at 150/200, 300, 500, and 1000 dbar every 7 days, spending
2.5 days at 1000 dbar and 1.5 days at the shallower depths. The sequence of
park phase depth at the three shallowest depths was varied between each 7-day
cycle over a 21-day period to avoid aliasing in particle flux profiles.
 
A float firmware error early in the project prevented collection of upper
water column data in some of the short-term deployments. This was remedied
before long-term deployment of the floats commenced. The floats occasionally
performed a reboot during ascent profiles. The affected profiles are missing
data for some pressure bins. Colored dissolved organic matter data are not
available for float F034 profiles from cruises B295 and B296 due to sensor
malfunction.
 
Profile data were acquired during the ascent to the surface following each
park phase acquisition at a sampling rate of 4 dbar below 500 dbar and 2 dbar
above 500 dbar.";

"Particles settling into the deep ocean remove carbon and biologically-important trace elements from sunlit, productive surface waters and from contact with the atmosphere over short timescales.�A shifting balance among physical, chemical, and biological processes determines the ultimate fate of most particles at depths between 100 and 1,000 m, where fluxes are hardest to measure.�Our challenge is to expand the number of particle flux observations in the critical \"twilight zone\", something that has proven elusive with ship-based “snapshots” that have lengths of, at most, a few weeks.�Here, we propose an optical, transmissometer-based method to make particle flux observations from autonomous, biogeochemical profiling floats.�Novel developments in data interpretation, sensor operation, and platform control now allow flux measurements at hourly resolution and give us observational access to the water-column processes driving particle flux over short timescales.�The sensors and float platforms that we propose to use are simple, robust, and commercially-available, making them immediately compatible with community-scale efforts to implement other float-based biogeochemical measurements.
We have two main goals:� First, we will quantify particulate organic carbon (POC) flux using float-based optical measurements by validating our observations against fluxes measured directly with neutrally-buoyant, drifting sediment traps. Second, we will evaluate the contribution of rapid export events to total POC fluxes in the oligotrophic ocean by using a biogeochemical profiling float to collect nearly-continuous, depth-resolved flux measurements and coupled, water-column bio-optical profiles.�
To achieve these goals, we will implement a work plan consisting of 1) a set of laboratory-based sensor calibration experiments to determine detection limits and evaluate sensitivity to particle size; 2) a series of four sediment trap and biogeochemical float co-deployments during which we will collect POC flux and field calibration data; and 3) a long-term sampling and analysis period (approximately 1 year) during which data will be returned by satellite from the biogeochemical float.�We will conduct calibration fieldwork in conjunction with monthly Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS) cruises, taking advantage of the timeseries measurements and the context provided by the 25-year record of POC flux at that site.�The data returned by the float will comprise the first quantitative particle flux observations made at high-enough temporal resolution to interpret in the context of short-term, upper-ocean production events.";

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
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/datasetID.fileType{?query}
For example,
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/pmelTaoDySst.htmlTable?longitude,latitude,time,station,wmo_platform_code,T_25&time>=2015-05-23T12:00:00Z&time<=2015-05-31T12:00:00Z
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.
