Real-time monitoring of upper ocean variability in the Australian region of the Southern Ocean using Argo profiling floatsEntry ID: ASAC_2519
Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2519
See the link below for public details on this project.
This dataset comprises of floating buoy data collected as part of the ARGO program. All of the data are automatically uploaded to the main ARGO data centre, and can be accessed from there (via the url given below). Above the map of current float locations on this web page, there are buttons to ... allow you to access an interactive map, search for floats, and access the data.
The Argo floats are programmed to measure temperature and salinity profiles from 2000m to the sea surface every 10 days. When they surface they transmit the profile data, their location, and various engineering parameters to satellite. The data ares put on the Global Telecommunications System (GTS) and are available within 24 hours. Global data centres in the USA and France receive the raw data from the country of origin and also update the data when quality control is performed.
Some floats measure other data in addition to temperature and salinity. Dissolved oxygen and current velocity are two other parameters that are measured by a few floats.
See the ARGO website for further details about each float (information can be accessed using the WMO (World Meteorological Organisation) numbers provided in the download file).
