To San Diego, via Chile
RV Kaharoa leaves this month on Argo 5 to San Diego via Chile and return. In 2006, Kaharoa will travel west to Mauritius (‘Argo 6’). Kaharoa was also used on Argo 1, 2, & 4. Argo 3, to the Southern Ocean, was conducted by RV Tangaroa. NIWA has deployed more floats than any other organisation.
NIWA’s 28-metre research vessel Kaharoa sets sail shortly to deploy more ocean-profiling Argo floats across the Pacific.
