During the fall of 2015 and throughout 2016, 2 LOBO and 1 U Maine buoys are deployed in the Damariscotta River estuary (upper and middle LOBO, outer U Maine) and the Saco Bay region (Saco River and Scarborough Marsh LOBO, Saco Bay U Maine). From 2017-2019, buoys will be moved to our other sites in Casco Bay, Penobscot Bay, Cobscook Bay, and the Jonesport area.  This streaming buoy data is provisional subject to calibration.";

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.
