Department of the Interior funded the Deepwater Physical Oceanography Reanalysis and Synthesis of Historical Data Study in the Gulf of Mexico. MMS awarded the contract to the Texas A&M Research Foundation in July 1998. The basic study area is bounded by the shelf edge and the 25DGN latitude, which is the southern boundary; it extends from sea surface to sea floor. MMS has four objectives for the study. First is to create an inventory of physical oceanographic data and compile it into a single database on a CD-ROM. Second is to conduct analyses and interpretations of the physical oceanographic data to identify physical processes and phenomena. Third is to produce a climatology of the processes from available data and analyses and to prioritize the processes in terms of importance to improved understanding, simulation, and prediction of deepwater circulation. Fourth is to provide criteria and constraints useful in design of future field observations and numerical modeling efforts. Study results will provide MMS with information needed to direct its resources more efficiently and effectively in the review and assessment of potential environmental impacts of offshore oil and gas operations in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.";

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.
