BODC - Argo float, WMO 5900179

This dataset contains temperature, salinity and pressure data for all profiles of the Argo float 5900179 managed by the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC).

Argo is a major international collaborative project to observe the world's oceans and help scientists understand ocean processes and the ocean's roles in climate. The data collected also improves our ability to forecast climate and ocean conditions.

The float drift at depth of between 1 and 2 km. Every ten days each float ascends to the surface, measuring temperature and salinity as it rises. This data is transmitted to satellites along with the float's position. The float then dives and starts a new cycle.

The Argo float, WMO 5900179 was first deployed on the 2002-04-04T23:59:00 at launch location (Latitude : -33.52 ; Longitude : 94.62).

The variables available for this Argo float are : Temperature, Practical Salinity and Pressure.

The last location of the Argo float was transmitted on the 2006-05-24T12:37:15 at the following location (Latitude : -32.858 ; Longitude : 93.41).
