"Sample Collection and Filtration  
 All seawater samples analyzed here for dissolved iron (dFe) concentration
and isotope ratios (\\u03b456Fe) were collected between 21 November and 4
December 2013 aboard the R/V Thomas G. Thompson as part of the U.S. GEOTRACES
GP16 East Pacific Zonal Transect (Resing et al. 2015, Fitzsimmons et al. 2017,
John et al. 2018). The EPZT encompassed 35 stations along an 8000 km transect
that traversed from Peru to Tahiti (Peters et al. 2017, Moffett & German
2018). All seawater samples were collected as part of the standard U.S.
GEOTRACES trace metal casts, using a trace metal clean carousel and CTD
(Seabird) with a Kevlar conducting cable, fitted with 24 x 12-L Teflon-coated
GO-Flo bottles (General Oceanics), following established GEOTRACES protocols
(Cutter & Bruland 2012). Rosette deployments began with GO-Flo bottles open,
allowing them to flush during deployment to depth, and the GO-Flo bottle was
subsequently tripped on ascent at ~3 m/min, to minimize chances of
contamination from rosette hardware. Upon recovery, GO-Flo bottles were
transferred immediately into a clean van for subsampling and were pressurized
using HEPA-filtered air. Each GO-Flo bottle was fitted with acid-cleaned
Teflon tubing connected to a 0.2 um Acropak-200 capsule filter (Pall),
allowing collection of filtered seawater for bulk dissolved Fe analysis into 4
L acid-clean low-density polyethylene (LDPE) bottles, after three 10% volume
seawater rinses of the caps and threads (Cutter et al. 2017). Filtered
seawater from Station 26 at 2650 m and 2700 m depths were combined to achieve
sufficient volume for ultrafiltration processing.
 
Ultrafiltration and Sample Processing  
 Immediately after sample collection and 0.2 um filtration, 1 L of the 4 L
homogenized sample was poured into a clean 1 L LDPE bottle for dissolved Fe
analysis, and the remaining sample (~ 3 L) was ultrafiltered. Ultrafiltration
took place using a cross flow filtration system (CFF) with a 10 kDa (~0.003 um
for globular proteins; Erickson et al. 2009) regenerated cellulose membrane
(Pellicon XL PLCGC) in single-pass mode (see Fitzsimmons and Boyle 2014 for
detailed methods). Briefly, before collection, the CFF system was conditioned
using ~500 mL of sample seawater, and the sample bottles, caps, and threads
were rinsed with a minimal amount of ultrafiltered seawater. After
conditioning, ~1 L of permeate (soluble fraction) and ~1 L of retentate were
collected into separate 1 L LDPE bottles. All samples were then acidified to
0.012 M hydrochloric acid (HCl, Optima, Fisher) and stored for more than a
year before analysis. Soluble Fe (sFe) is defined as the concentration in the
permeate solution.
 
Dissolved Fe Concentration Analysis  
 Iron concentrations in the dissolved, permeate, and retentate phases were
analyzed using a 15 mL aliquot of the 1 L samples. Samples were analyzed in
the Sherrell lab at Rutgers University with a SeaFAST pico system (ESI, Omaha,
NE, USA) and Thermo Element 1 HR-ICPMS following the SeaFAST methods of
Lagerstrom et al. (2013). Samples were analyzed offline, as outlined by Jensen
et al. (2020).
 
Dissolved Fe isotope ratio (\\u03b456Fe) Analysis  
 Iron stable isotope ratios (\\u03b456Fe) were determined using a double-spike
multi-collector MC-ICPMS technique, based on Conway et al. (2013). All sample
processing and Fe isotope analyses were carried out at the University of South
Florida (USF). Chemical processing of samples took place in ISO-5 laminar flow
hoods within the Marine Metal Isotope and Trace Element ISO-6 clean laboratory
at the USF College of Marine Science. All ultrapure water used was from a
Thermo Scientific Barnstead Genpure Ultrapure Water System; all plasticware
was cleaned using standard procedures (Conway et al. 2013); and all reagents
were Optima grade from Fisher Scientific. Briefly, the ~1 L of dissolved,
permeate, and retentate seawater samples were spiked with a double spike
containing 57Fe and 58Fe at a ratio of ~1:1, to provide a ~1:2 ratio of
natural:spike Fe in samples. Following spiking, samples were amended to 10 mM
H\\u2082O\\u2082 and left for 24 h after spiking. Samples were then brought to
pH ~6, and Fe was extracted from seawater onto Nobias PA-1 chelating resin
beads using a batch extraction technique. The Fe was then eluted from the
Nobias resin using 3 M HNO\\u2083, evaporated to dryness, refluxed with a conc.
HNO\\u2083 and conc. H\\u2082O\\u2082 mixture, evaporated to dryness, taken up in
1 M HCl, and purified using an AGMP-1 (BioRad) anion-exchange column chemistry
technique following Sieber et al. (2019). Following column purification,
samples were evaporated to dryness before being re-dissolved in 0.5 mL of 2%
HNO\\u2083 (v/v) for analysis by MC-ICPMS.
 
Samples were analyzed for Fe isotope ratios by Thermo Neptune Plus MC-ICPMS at
USF\\u2019s Tampa Bay Plasma Facility at the USF College of Marine Science.
Briefly, samples were introduced via a ~100 \\u00b5L/min PFA nebulizer into an
ESI Apex \\u03a9 desolvator (with Ar but no N\\u2082 add gas), using a Ni Jet
sampler cone and an Al X skimmer cone. Fe isotope ratios were measured using
high resolution mode, and instrumental mass bias was corrected using the
double spike technique. \\u03b456Fe were calculated following an iterative
procedure based on Siebert et al. (2001) and are expressed relative to the
IRMM-014 international standard.

were combined to achieve sufficient volume for ultrafiltration processing.";

"From the NSF Award Abstract
The mission of the International GEOTRACES Program (www.geotraces.org), of which the U.S. chemical oceanography research community is a founding member, is \"to identify processes and quantify fluxes that control the distributions of key trace elements and isotopes in the ocean, and to establish the sensitivity of these distributions to changing environmental conditions\" (GEOTRACES Science Plan, 2006). In the United States, ocean chemists are currently in the process of organizing a zonal transect in the eastern tropical South Pacific (ETSP) from Peru to Tahiti as the second cruise of the U.S.GEOTRACES Program. This Pacific section includes a large area characterized by high rates of primary production and particle export in the eastern boundary associated with the Peru Upwelling, a large oxygen minimum zone that is a major global sink for fixed nitrogen, and a large hydrothermal plume arising from the East Pacific Rise. This particular section was selected as a result of open planning workshops in 2007 and 2008, with a final recommendation made by the U.S.GEOTRACES Steering Committee in 2009. It is the first part of a two-stage plan that will include a meridional section of the Pacific from Tahiti to Alaska as a subsequent expedition.
This award provides funding for management of the U.S.GEOTRACES Pacific campaign to a team of scientists from the University of Southern California, Old Dominion University, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The three co-leaders will provide mission leadership, essential support services, and management structure for acquiring the trace elements and isotopes samples listed as core parameters in the International GEOTRACES Science Plan, plus hydrographic and nutrient data needed by participating investigators. With this support from NSF, the management team will (1) plan and coordinate the 52-day Pacific research cruise described above; (2) obtain representative samples for a wide variety of trace metals of interest using conventional CTD/rosette and GEOTRACES Sampling Systems; (3) acquire conventional JGOFS/WOCE-quality hydrographic data (CTD, transmissometer, fluorometer, oxygen sensor, etc) along with discrete samples for salinity, dissolved oxygen (to 1 uM detection limits), plant pigments, redox tracers such as ammonium and nitrite, and dissolved nutrients at micro- and nanomolar levels; (4) ensure that proper QA/QC protocols are followed and reported, as well as fulfilling all GEOTRACES Intercalibration protocols; (5) prepare and deliver all hydrographic-type data to the GEOTRACES Data Center (and US data centers); and (6) coordinate cruise communications between all participating investigators, including preparation of a hydrographic report/publication.
Broader Impacts: The project is part of an international collaborative program that has forged strong partnerships in the intercalibration and implementation phases that are unprecedented in chemical oceanography. The science product of these collective missions will enhance our ability to understand how to interpret the chemical composition of the ocean, and interpret how climate change will affect ocean chemistry. Partnerships include contributions to the infrastructure of developing nations with overlapping interests in the study area, in this case Peru. There is a strong educational component to the program, with many Ph.D. students carrying out thesis research within the program.

"During the 2013 GEOTRACES Eastern Pacific cruise a diverse range of oceanic environments will be encountered from the high productivity/high particle flux waters off Peru to the Peru-Chile oxygen minimum zone, the hydrothermal plume of the East Pacific Rise, and finally to some of the most oligotrophic waters around Tahiti. Scientists from Rutgers University and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution will sample suspended particulates from the same GO-Flo bottles that will be used to sample dissolved trace metals and their isotopes (TEIs) across this entire transect. The suspended matter samples will be analyzed for 42 elements, including the particle-reactive rare earth elements. In addition, core-top sediments will be collected at every water-column sampling station and analyzed for both bulk composition (i.e., relative % content of organic carbon, opal, biogenic carbonate and lithogenic components) and the same 42 elements to be analyzed in the suspended particulates. Results from this study will be used to assess the role of suspended particulates in the biogeochemical cycling of TEIs across the Eastern Pacific by addressing three key sets of questions: (1) How does uptake of TEIs into phytoplankton and non-living particles in the upper ocean drive the suspended particulate composition through the deeper water column, along the substantial gradient from the high productivity Peru margin to the oligotrophic ocean interior?; (2) How faithfully is the along-transect variability in the upper ocean transmitted to the sediment (paleo) record?; (3) What are the relative influences of vertical recycling versus lateral advection in generating the distributions of dissolved and particulate TEIs observed in the Peru-Chile OMZ?; (4) Is there a characteristic signature of OMZ activity that is preserved in core-top sediments?; (5) What dominates TEI uptake onto/into authigenic particles in hydrothermal plumes and to what extent are these processes augmented by continuing uptake in core-top sediments?; and (6) What is the net effect from submarine venting on global TEI budgets?
As regards broader impacts, the scientist from Rutgers University is collaborating with the Education Director of the Centers for Ocean Science Education Excellence Networked Ocean World (COSEE-NOW) to contribute to the MARE (Marine Activities, Resources, and Education) program by inviting teachers and high school students to workshops and presentations on climate and ocean sciences. With the help of COSEE-NOW, he also plans to create educational video clips during the Pacific cruise and the subsequent laboratory based analytical work to educate them on the use of geochemistry to understand how the ocean works. Both scientists also plan to develop a teaching module entitled \"Particles, Metals, and Carbon\" for an Introduction to Oceanography class taught by the Rutgers scientist. One postdoc from Rutgers University would be supported and trained as part of this project.";

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.
