"We sampled 86 sites within seagrass habitats throughout Back Sound, North
Carolina, USA (3442\\u2019 N to 3439\\u2019 N, 7637\\u2019 W to 7631\\u2019 W
during July 2013. Sampling sites were located across 21 seagrass landscapes
which were defined by 200m x 80m rectangles (matching common isolated bed size
and shape within our system). These landscapes were previously selected to
represent independent gradients in both total seagrass cover (260-11,764 m2)
and landscape patchiness (1-75 individual patches; Yeager et al. 2016).
Sampling sites in the current study were haphazardly placed across all 21
landscapes, but always located within seagrass itself, and not the unvegetated
matrix.\\u00a0
 
Seagrass core sampling and laboratory processing:  
 One core sample was taken from each sampling site. Each core measured 30 cm
in diameter and captured the above ground seagrass habitat as well as the top
10 cm of the sediment surface. All cores were taken within 2 h of low tide and
the GPS location of each core was marked with a Garmin 72H handheld unit
(Garmin International, Olathe, Kansas, USA). Low-tide depth was measured in
situ at each site at the time of sampling to the nearest 10 cm.\\u00a0\\u00a0
 
Core samples were taken back to the lab and screened using a 500-m sieve;
benthic macrofauna were sorted from larger debris and seagrass tissue and
transferred to a 70% ETOH solution for storage. These organisms were then
identified to the lowest taxon possible, enumerated, dried (48 h at 60 C), and
weighed to the nearest 0.0001g. Only polychaetes with intact anterior
appendages were identified and counted for density estimates to prevent
overestimation and because these are requisite features for accurate
identification.\\u00a0
 
The core (30-cm diameter, PVC) was gently placed by hand at each site and
pushed down to a constant depth of 10 cm into the sediment.\\u00a0 The core was
gently rotated to break seagrass rhizomes, then dug out by hand, lifted, and
placed into a resealable 1.5-gallon plastic bag. The sample was transported
back to the laboratory on ice.\\u00a0";

"Amount and quality of habitat is thought to be of fundamental importance to maintaining coastal marine ecosystems. This research will use large-scale field experiments to help understand how and why fish populations respond to fragmentation of seagrass habitats. The question is complex because increased fragmentation in seagrass beds decreases the amount and also the configuration of the habitat (one patch splits into many, patches become further apart, the amount of edge increases, etc). Previous work by the investigators in natural seagrass meadows provided evidence that fragmentation interacts with amount of habitat to influence the community dynamics of fishes in coastal marine landscapes. Specifically, fragmentation had no effect when the habitat was large, but had a negative effect when habitat was smaller. In this study, the investigators will build artificial seagrass habitat to use in a series of manipulative field experiments at an ambitious scale. The results will provide new, more specific information about how coastal fish community dynamics are affected by changes in overall amount and fragmentation of seagrass habitat, in concert with factors such as disturbance, larval dispersal, and wave energy. The project will support two early-career investigators, inform habitat conservation strategies for coastal management, and provide training opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students. The investigators plan to target students from underrepresented groups for the research opportunities.
Building on previous research in seagrass environments, this research will conduct a series of field experiments approach at novel, yet relevant scales, to test how habitat area and fragmentation affect fish diversity and productivity. Specifically, 15 by 15-m seagrass beds will be created using artificial seagrass units (ASUs) that control for within-patch-level (~1-10 m2) factors such as shoot density and length. The investigators will employ ASUs to manipulate total habitat area and the degree of fragmentation within seagrass beds in a temperate estuary in North Carolina. In year one, response of the fishes that colonize these landscapes will be measured as abundance, biomass, community structure, as well as taxonomic and functional diversity. Targeted ASU removals will then follow to determine species-specific responses to habitat disturbance. In year two, the landscape array and sampling regime will be doubled, and half of the landscapes will be seeded with post-larval fish of low dispersal ability to test whether pre- or post-recruitment processes drive landscape-scale patterns. In year three, the role of wave exposure (a natural driver of seagrass fragmentation) in mediating fish community response to landscape configuration will be tested by deploying ASU meadows across low and high energy environments.";

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.
