argo float deployment
The Argo Float program has been the largest single project within CICOR. Over the last twelve years WHOI’s Argo team, lead by WHOI scientist Brechner Owens, has worked in collaboration with partners at Scripps Institution for Oceanography and the University of Washington to meet and advance the program’s goal: To build and deploy the ‘Argo Armada’, a global array of 3,000 free-drifting profiling floats that measures the temperature and salinity of the upper 2000 m of the ocean.
