Argo Canada The Argo programme consists of approximately 3600 profiling floats deployed around the world. Once at sea, the floats sink to a pre-programmed target depth of 1000 metres for a pre-programmed period of time. It then dives to 2000 metres and then rises to the surface, measuring temperature and salinity values during its ascent at set depths. Canada owns an average number of approximately 100 active profiling floats, which are active currently sampling the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. 2013-05-28 2016-12-01 Fisheries and Oceans Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentArgoprofiling floatoceanstemperaturesalinityoxygenoceanographyprofiledrifting profilerpacific oceanatlantic ocean Drift-CSVCSV http://www.meds-sdmm.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/alphapro/argo/drift_track/driftdata/all_drift_csv.zip Drift-NetCDFNetCDF http://www.usgodae.org/pub/outgoing/argo/dac/meds Profile-NetCDFNetCDF http://www.usgodae.org/pub/outgoing/argo/dac/meds MetadataZIP http://www.meds-sdmm.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/alphapro/argo/drift_track/metadata/all_meta.zip Technical-NetCDFNetCDF http://www.usgodae.org/pub/outgoing/argo/dac/meds Argo Canada Profiler Data Management ReportCSV http://www.meds-sdmm.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/alphapro/argo/perf_report.csv
