"The West Coast Observing System (WCOS) project provides access to temperature and currents data collected at four of the five National Marine Sanctuary sites, including Olympic Coast, Gulf of the Farallones, Monterey Bay, and Channel Islands. A semi-automated end-to-end data management system transports and transforms the data from source to archive, making the data acessible for discovery, access and analysis from multiple Internet points of entry.

The stations (and their code names) are San Miguel North (BAY), Santa Rosa North (BEA), Cuyler Harbor (CUY), Pelican/Prisoners Area (PEL), San Miguel South (SMS), Santa Rosa South (SRS), Valley Anch (VAL).";

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.
