Included in this file are sea temperatures from the surface to 300 meters depth, salinity and density (sigma-theta) from the surface to 200m depth, sea currents at 5m, 34m, and 35m depth, acoustic doppler profiles of zonal and meridional ocean current to from 28 to 160 meters depth, and a variety of surface observations for net air-sea fluxes of heat, moisture, and momentum including winds, solar and longwave radiation, rain, air temperature, relative humidity, and barometric pressure. Variables observed at rates other than 1 hour can be found in separate high resolution files.";

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.
