  1. Oct 06,  · Before Argo floats were deployed, temperature measurements in the Southern Ocean were spotty, at best. Using satellite measurements and climate simulations of sea level changes around the world, the new study found the global ocean absorbed far more heat in those 35 years than previously thought -- a whopping 24 to 58 percent more than early estimates.
  2. These instruments, called Deep Argo floats, can collect data down to nearly four miles deep, and promise to lead scientists to a better understanding of how the bottom half of the ocean may influence long term weather, climate, and sea level rise.
  3. Please support Argo by acknowledging your use of Argo data with the following words: "These data where collected and made freely available by the International Argo Program and the national initiatives that contribute to it.
  4. An extension of the Argo program to include biogeochemical observations. Science & Implementation Plan; About us. Program Origin; Participating countries; Mission Team; Data mgmt task team; Program Life. News on Twitter; Program Newsletter; Upcoming meetings; Past meetings; Scientific Questions. General Context; Carbon uptake; OMZs and NO 3.
  5. Worldwide tracking and environmental monitoring by satellite. Argos data collection and location system.
  6. The “array” of buoys is a major component of the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Observing System, the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). Tropical Atmosphere Ocean project website Argo: Global ocean observing program.
  7. Using OCCAM subsampled to typical Argo sampling density, it is found that outside of the western boundary, the mixed layer monthly heat storage in the subtropical North Atlantic has a sampling.
  8. There are about 4, Argo floats in the ocean. Most of the time they are asleep, a thousand metres below the surface. Every 10 days they wake up and slowly rise to the surface, taking temperature measurements as.
