"Inocula of 15N2-enriched water were prepared according to either of two
protocols outlined by Klawonn et al. (2015).\\u00a0  
 In a first Trial A, respective 1.9 mL of 15N2 gas aliquots (Cambridge
Isotope Laboratories, Lot #I-21065) were injected into crimped-sealed 120 mL
glass serum vials filled with deionized water. To dissolve the 15N2 bubble,
each of the two serum vials was vortexed for 5 minutes. Two subsamples of each
inoculum were dispensed into Exetainers\\u2122 with a peristaltic pump for
analysis on the MIMS. An aliquot of each inoculum (5 % vol/vol) was then
dispensed in replicate 160 mL serum incubation bottles containing air-
equilibrated deionized water (Trials A1-A4), which were then crimped-sealed.
Following homogenization, triplicate subsamples of each incubation were
collected in Exetainers\\u2122 for MIMS analysis. The 15N atom % of the inocula
and of the corresponding incubations were measured by MIMS at the University
of Connecticut (Bay Instruments) and computed as follows:\\u00a0
Equation 4:\\u00a0
In both trials, the concentration of N2 isotopologues (m/z 28, 29, and 30) in
each of the 15N2-enriched inocula was then extrapolated from the ionization
efficiency of N isotopologues in air-equilibrated seawater. We define the
ionization efficiency as the ratio of the isotopologue ion current measured by
MIMS relative to its concentration in air-equilibrated seawater (ASW):\\u00a0  
Equation S2:\\u00a0
 For instance, at a temperature of 25\\u00baC and salinity of 35 psu, the
solubility coefficients of Hamme and Emerson (2004) predict a N2 concentration
of 388.9 \\u03bcmol kg-1. The fraction of 15N in N2 (i.e., 15N/(14N+15N)) for
air-equilibrated seawater is 0.003663 (Mariotti, 1983), such that the expected
fractions of 28N2, 29N2, and 30N2 derived from their binomial probability
distributions are as follows:  
\\u00a0 = 99.2687 % Equation S3a
= 0.7299 % Equation S3b
= 0.0013 % Equation S3c  
Accordingly, air-equilibrated concentrations of 28N2, 29N2, and 30N2 at this
temperature and salinity are 386.0, 2.8, and 0.005 \\u03bcmol kg-1,
respectively. The ionization efficiency of the isotopologues is then equal to
the ion current of m/z 28 recorded for ASW divided by the corresponding 28N2
concentration (Eq. S2). We used the ionization efficiency of m/z 28 in ASW to
derive the N2 isotopologue concentrations in the inocula from their respective
MIMS ion currents. We did not derive distinct ionization efficiencies from the
ion current-to-concentration of m/z 29 and 30 in ASW, as these isotopologues
are poorly resolved by the MIMS at natural abundance. Thus, we are assuming
that the ionization efficiency of m/z 29 and 30 isotopologues is roughly
similar to that of m/z 28 (i.e., that ionization isotope effects are
negligible for our purposes). The initial expected AN2 of the
\\u201cincubations\\u201d was then calculated using a linear mixing model with
N2 isotopologue concentrations in ambient and enriched seawater";

"NSF Award Abstract:
The availability of nitrogen is required to support the growth and production of organisms living in the surface of our global ocean. This element can be scarce. To alleviate this scarcity, a special class of bacteria and archaea, called nitrogen fixers, can derive the nitrogen needed for growth from nitrogen gas. This project would carefully examine one specific method for measuring nitrogen fixation that has been used recently to suggest the occurrence of small amounts of nitrogen fixation in subsurface ocean waters. If these reports are verified, then a revision of our understanding of the marine nitrogen cycle may be needed. The Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry program will be used as a platform to develop community consensus for best practices in nitrogen fixation measurements and detection of diversity, activity, and abundances of the organisms responsible. In addition, a session will be organized in a future national/international conference to communicate with the broader scientific community while developing these best practices.
The goal of this study is to conduct a thorough examination of potential experimental and analytical errors inherent to the 15N2-tracer nitrogen fixation method, in tandem with comprehensive molecular measurements, in mesopelagic ocean waters. Samples will be collected and experimental work conducted on a cruise transect in the North Atlantic Ocean, followed by analytical work in the laboratory. The specific aims of this study are to (1) determine the minimum quantifiable rates of 15N2 fixation based on incubations of mesopelagic waters via characterization of sources of experimental and analytical error, and (2) seek evidence of presence and expression of nitrogen fixation genes via comprehensive molecular approaches on corresponding samples. The range of detectable rates and diazotroph activity from the measurements made in this study will be informative for the understanding of the importance of nitrogen fixation in the oceanic nitrogen budget.";

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.
