    String summary "The data product on benthic living modes (Beauchard, 2018), was based on an extensive compilation of data on benthic abundance and biomass. However, this dataset was only present as a data file, without the underlying scripts to reproduce the result. With the present data product, we correct this procedural gap. This dataset differs in details from the file underlying the data product on living modes. Datasets were selected that were sufficiently similar in methods for sampling (either boxcore or grab), sampled surface (in the order of 0.1 square meter, although the exact value is variable - it can be found back in the data files) and sieves (1 mm and 0.5 mm sieves were included). For all datasets, abundance was either used directly from the given abundance in the dataset, or calculated from the given counts and area sampled.";

Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its projection 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.

griddap request URLs must be in the form
For example,
Thus, the query is often a data variable name (e.g., analysed_sst), followed by [(start):stride:(stop)] (or a shorter variation of that) for each of the variable's dimensions (for example, [time][latitude][longitude]).

For details, see the griddap Documentation.
