"Collection and experimental setup methods extracted from Doo et al. (2018):  
 Colony collection: In January 2017, 48 colonies of Pocillopora verrucosa
(Ellis and Solander 1786) were collected randomly on scuba from 5 m depth on
the north shore of Mo\\u2019orea, French Polynesia (17\\u00b0 28'\\u00a033\\\"S,
149\\u00b0 49' 20\\\"W).\\u00a0Following 5 d of acclimation, 24 of the corals were
selected randomly for removal of all trapeziid crabs and alpheid shrimps\\u00a0
(\\\"minus-ectosymbiont\\\") by probing with a wooden stick (3 mm diameter). Crabs
and shrimp were left in the other 24 corals (\\\"plus-ectosymbiont\\\"), which
were subjected to a procedural control in which they were probed with a wooden
Incubation setup:\\u00a0Twelve mesocosm tanks (150 L volume with sand-filtered
seawater pumped from 14 m depth in Cooks\\u2019 Bay and supplied to the tanks
at ~200 mL min\\u22121) were used in this experiment, with four colonies per
tank in a split-plot design contrasting plus-ectosymbiont (n = 2
colonies/tank) and minus-ectosymbiont (n = 2 colonies/tank) corals.
Daily measures of salinity, pH, and total alkalinity (TA):\\u00a0  
 Temperature was recorded with a thermometer (\\u00b1 0.05 degrees C;
ThermoFisher Traceable) and salinity was measured with a bench-top
conductivity meter (\\u00b1 0.1 psu, YSI 3100). TA and pH were measured within
one hour of sample collection. Seawater collected for TA was filtered (0.45
um; Chanson and Millero, 2007) and analyzed using potentiometric titrations
with 0.1-N HCl using an automatic titrator (Mettler Toledo T50) (Dickson et
al., 2007). Seawater pH was measured with spectrophotometric methods (Nemzer
and Dickson, 2005).
Buoyant weight:\\u00a0was measured at start and end of experiment and
difference between the two values was used to calculate an increase in dry
skeletal weight (i.e., calcification) using the density of aragonite, and then
normalized to the surface area of each coral (Davies 1989).";

"From http://www.lternet.edu/sites/mcr/ and http://mcr.lternet.edu/:
The Moorea Coral Reef LTER site encompasses the coral reef complex that surrounds the island of Moorea, French Polynesia (17°30'S, 149°50'W). Moorea is a small, triangular volcanic island 20 km west of Tahiti in the Society Islands of French Polynesia. An offshore barrier reef forms a system of shallow (mean depth ~ 5-7 m), narrow (~0.8-1.5 km wide) lagoons around the 60 km perimeter of Moorea. All major coral reef types (e.g., fringing reef, lagoon patch reefs, back reef, barrier reef and fore reef) are present and accessible by small boat.
The MCR LTER was established in 2004 by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and is a partnership between the University of California Santa Barbara and California State University, Northridge. MCR researchers include marine scientists from the UC Santa Barbara, CSU Northridge, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UC San Diego, CSU San Marcos, Duke University and the University of Hawaii. Field operations are conducted from the UC Berkeley Richard B. Gump South Pacific Research Station on the island of Moorea, French Polynesia.

"Extracted from the NSF award abstract:
This project focuses on the most serious threat to marine ecosystems, Ocean Acidification (OA), and addresses the problem in the most diverse and beautiful ecosystem on the planet, coral reefs. The research utilizes Moorea, French Polynesia as a model system, and builds from the NSF investment in the Moorea Coral Reef Long Term Ecological Research Site (LTER) to exploit physical and biological monitoring of coral reefs as a context for a program of studies focused on the ways in which OA will affect corals, calcified algae, and coral reef ecosystems. The project builds on a four-year NSF award with research in five new directions: (1) experiments of year-long duration, (2) studies of coral reefs to 20-m depth, (3) experiments in which carbon dioxide will be administered to plots of coral reef underwater, (4) measurements of the capacity of coral reef organisms to change through evolutionary and induced responses to improve their resistance to OA, and (5) application of emerging theories to couple studies of individual organisms to studies of whole coral reefs. Broader impacts will accrue through a better understanding of the ways in which OA will affect coral reefs that are the poster child for demonstrating climate change effects in the marine environment, and which provide income, food, and coastal protection to millions of people living in coastal areas, including in the United States. 
This project focuses on the effects of Ocean Acidification on tropical coral reefs and builds on a program of research results from an existing 4-year award, and closely interfaces with the technical, hardware, and information infrastructure provided through the Moorea Coral Reef (MCR) LTER. The MCR-LTER, provides an unparalleled opportunity to partner with a study of OA effects on a coral reef with a location that arguably is better instrumented and studied in more ecological detail than any other coral reef in the world. Therefore, the results can be both contextualized by a high degree of ecological and physical relevance, and readily integrated into emerging theory seeking to predict the structure and function of coral reefs in warmer and more acidic future oceans. The existing award has involved a program of study in Moorea that has focused mostly on short-term organismic and ecological responses of corals and calcified algae, experiments conducted in mesocosms and flumes, and measurements of reef-scale calcification. This new award involves three new technical advances: for the first time, experiments will be conducted of year-long duration in replicate outdoor flumes; CO2 treatments will be administered to fully intact reef ecosystems in situ using replicated underwater flumes; and replicated common garden cultivation techniques will be used to explore within-species genetic variation in the response to OA conditions. Together, these tools will be used to support research on corals and calcified algae in three thematic areas: (1) tests for long-term (1 year) effects of OA on growth, performance, and fitness, (2) tests for depth-dependent effects of OA on reef communities at 20-m depth where light regimes are attenuated compared to shallow water, and (3) tests for beneficial responses to OA through intrinsic, within-species genetic variability and phenotypic plasticity. Some of the key experiments in these thematic areas will be designed to exploit integral projection models (IPMs) to couple organism with community responses, and to support the use of the metabolic theory of ecology (MTE) to address scale-dependence of OA effects on coral reef organisms and the function of the communities they build.

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.
