ARGO - measuring salinity and temperature across the oceans

ARGO - measuring salinity and temperature across the oceans

Since the early 2000s, NIWA has been part of the international Argo programme. Argo floats take the pulse of the oceans, collecting and distributing temperature and salinity observations from a global network of more than 3700 underwater robots. The data being gathered will improve our understanding not only of our oceans' role in climate and weather, but will play a major role in informing decisions affecting our oceans and its inhabitants.
