    String summary "This file contains hourly real-time and delayed-mode in-situ data from one of the TRITON mooring sites in the tropical oceans. This file originated at NOAA/Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL), but the data come from JAMSTEC. Included in this file are sea temperatures from the surface to 750 meters, salinity, density (sigma-t and sigma-theta), and electrical conductivity from the surface to 750 meters, sea currents at 10m depth, and a variety of surface observations including winds, air temperature, relative humidity, shortwave solar radiation, and barometric pressure. Buoy positions are also included as time series of latitude and longitude. Note that sigma-theta is computed from TRITON hourly temperatures and salinity at NOAA/PMEL. After 2007, the sites at 1.5S,90E and 5S,95E, no longer deployed TRITON buoys but instead use mTRITON (mini TRITON). 8S,95E has only had mTRITON deployments. mTRITON buoys have temperatures to 500 meters, and salinity, density, and conductivity to 60 meters. Differences in the height of meteorlogical instruments for TRITON versus mTRITON which are 1 meter or less have been ignored, and TRITON heights used at all times. At 8S,95E only mTRITON heights are used. Similarly, the depth of the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) sensor is 1.5 meters for TRITON but 1 meter for mTRITON. SST depth is set to 1.5m at all times in files for 1.5S,90E and 5S,95E, but 1m at 8S,95E.";

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.
