"Full details for collection and analyses of underway Chl samples are provided
by Go\\u00f1i et al., submitted . Brief summaries are provided below.
Samples for this study were collected aboard RV Oceanus using the surface
underway scientific system.
Aboard the vessel we had access to uncontaminated seawater and collected
samples at specific times that allowed us to determine location (latitude and
longitude) and seawater characteristics (temperature and salinity) from the
ships\\u2019 navigation and sensor panels. We used a semi-automated filtration
system (SAFS) described by Go\\u00f1i et al., (2019) connected to Oceanus
surface underway water to collect particulate samples for chlorophyll analyis.
Surface underway water was connected to the SAFS through a manual flow-control
valve via opaque polyethylene tubing.\\u00a0 A fly wheel flow meter was placed
in-line and connected to a laptop computer using a data acquisition system to
measure and record flows during the filtration stage. A switching valve with 8
ports was placed downstream from the flow meter and controlled by the
laptop.\\u00a0 Under stand-by conditions, flow was directed to the
\\u2018waste\\u2019 port, which was fitted with unobstructed tubing that drained
into one of the ship\\u2019s sinks and flowed back to sea.\\u00a0 For
Chlorophyll (Chl) measurements, samples were collected via the SAFS using 25
mm pre-combusted GF/F membranes placed inside stainless steel filter holders.
Once filters were fitted in each of the sample ports, the filtration program
was started to collect samples at selected intervals.
Once the filtration run was completed, the filter housings were removed from
the SAFS, opened, and each individual filter placed in a closed container and
stored in -80oC freezer until analyses.\\u00a0 Each sample was assigned a
specific time stamp (start-end of filtration process) that coincided with the
ship\\u2019s clock and allowed us to retrieve location and oceanographic data
for each sample, as well as determine an overall filtration volume, which was
used to calculate total chlorophyll concentrations once analyses were
Samples were processed and analyzed following the method outlined in
Strickland and Parsons (1972). Brifely, chlorophyll a concentrations were
determined using the method of where samples were extracted in 90% acetone for
48 hours at -20\\u00b0C in the dark and measured fluorometrically using a
Turner Designs 10-AU fluorometer.

"NSF Award Abstract:
As is true for many coastal regions worldwide, the Pacific Northwest margin is characterized by intense seasonal contrasts in conditions controlling carbon flux between the atmosphere, land, and ocean. During the wintertime, rapid and intense flooding of small coastal rivers and the associated inputs of freshwater, nutrients, and organic matter are commonplace in the Pacific Northwest. Impacts of these wintertime terrestrial-ocean transfers by small, flood-prone rivers on the upwelling regions, such as the Pacific Northwest, have been underestimated at both global and regional scales. In order to gain a complete and predictive understanding of carbon cycling in ocean margins, the biogeochemistry of periods of intense terrestrial-ocean transfers needs to be comprehensively studied. This project will evaluate the dynamics of organic matter cycling along an upwelling-dominated margin during the wintertime period of active terrestrial inputs and biological cycling using a combination of shipboard, glider, moored and remote measurements. New developments in ocean observational technologies through the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI)* and existing scientific infrastructure along the Oregon coast will be instrumental in achieving this goal. This work will provide research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, and outreach will be conducted through the Centers for Ocean Science Education Excellence Pacific Partnership, local coastal community colleges, and interpretative centers such as Oregon State University Hatfield Center, the Umpqua Discovery Center, and Oregon Coast Aquarium in an effort to educate students and the public about the research.
Globally, most studies of carbon cycling in eastern boundary regimes have focused on the upwelling phase during the summer months, resulting in a much poorer understanding of non-upwelling periods. As is many coastal upwelling systems, wintertime conditions along the Pacific Northwest margin are characterized by southerly, downwelling-favorable winds and moisture-laden storms that result in seasonal flooding by the numerous small to medium-sized rivers in the region. Elevated discharges by these coastal rivers translate into large inputs of land-derived biogeochemical relevant constituents, including freshwater, dissolved inorganic nutrients, and dissolved and particulate organic matter, which collectively rival or exceed those of the Columbia River. To understand the impact of flood-derived terrestrial inputs on the biogeochemistry of the coastal zone along the Pacific Northwest margin, researchers will conduct a detailed investigation of biogeochemical processes in the water column along the Newport Hydrographic Line off the central Oregon coast during fall/winter conditions. The project includes an intensive field effort that takes advantage of ship-based and autonomous platforms to gain comprehensive wintertime coverage. Among the project outcomes, this effort will lead to a revised paradigm of the biogeochemical drivers of carbon cycling in coastal margins.
*The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is an NSF-funded, networked infrastructure of science-driven sensor systems to measure the physical, chemical, geological and biological variables in the ocean and seafloor.

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.
