Code Sample: HTML

While contracted to the U.S. Geological Survey, I was part of a team researching ocean acidification in the Gulf of Mexico. Along with my work analyzing data for the project, I put together simple websites for all three parts of the data series report. The sites were build using a template provided by the USGS and adhering to their formatting guidelines, which at the time did not include a mobile-optimized site. Because the report was also distributed on CD, I could not use a server-side programming language, so the sites are static, or HTML-only.

109  <h3>Project Summary</h3>

110  <p>From August 17 to 21, 2009, a cruise led by the <abbr title="United States">U.S.</abbr> Geological Survey 

111  (<abbr title="U.S. Geological Survey">USGS</abbr>) collected air and sea surface partial pressure of carbon dioxide 

112  (<abbr title="partial pressure of carbon dioxide">pCO<sub>2</sub></abbr>), pH, dissolved inorganic carbon 

113  (<abbr title="dissolved inorganic carbon">DIC</abbr>), and total alkalinity (<abbr title="total alkalinity">TA</abbr>) 

114  data on the west Florida shelf. Approximately 2,000 data points were collected underway over a 1,320-kilometer 

115  (<abbr title="kilometer">km</abbr>) track line using the Multiparameter Inorganic Carbon Analyzer 

116  (<abbr title="Multiparameter Inorganic Carbon Analyzer">MICA</abbr>). The collection of data extended from Crystal 

117  River to Marco Island, Florida (~400 <abbr title="kilometers">km</abbr>), and westward up to 160 

118  <abbr title="kilometers">km</abbr> off the Florida coast. Discrete water samples were also taken at specific 

119  localities to corroborate underway data measurements. The <abbr title="U.S. Geological Survey">USGS</abbr> 

120  <abbr title="Saint">St.</abbr> Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) assigns a unique identifier 

121  to each cruise or field activity.  For example, 09FSH02 tells us that the data were collected in 2009 for the 

122  Response of Florida Shelf (FSH) Ecosystems to Climate Change project, and the data were collected during the second 

123  field activity for that study in that calendar year.</p>
