Hints on interpreting the float data (new page)
This page allows you to display data from European and other Argo floats. To help you understand the data we provide background 'stories' for the floats in our 'Exploring the Oceans' float selection.
Click on any of the floats on the map above to view its data and find explanations of what is going on.
If you are interested in a float that is not in our selection, you can display its data by entering the WMO float number in the box below.
We also have a web page with general
hints on interpreting the plots. To help you put the float data in a wider context our
Argo tour of the ocean has useful background information for different regions.
Alternatively you can create lists of floats deployed by a European country by clicking on one of the flags. The list will appear at the bottom of this page.
Click on a flag to list the country's active floator enter the number of the float to display:
You can also access information on individual floats from our Google Earth float selection. For information on how to do this see View the floats in Google Earth
The float data we show here comes from the Coriolis data centre at IFREMER in France. This data is available within a few hours of it being collected, and is used for example in ocean and weather forecasting. There is also a 'delayed mode' data product, which has been received extra quality checks before it is made available to scientists using Argo in ocean and climate research.
