Argo float deployment
An Argo float is deployed by crew Bruce McIntyre, Shane Harvey and Bryce Barrett. Argo floats profile the temperature and salinity of the ocean, diving down every ten days to 2000 m deep. This single Argo we deployed today joins an array of about 3200 floats cruising the currents of the world’s oceans. All the data collected by Argo floats are publically available in near real-time.
