Argo outreach resource

In line with the Argo outreach effort, CSIRO has been hosting a web-page which provides weekly updated T/S profiles for the global Argo array:, with specific characteristics as follow:

* national grouping for floats localisation
* low-cost hardware requirements for web-access, ie access is via GoogleMap which requires no high-speed graphic card, in contrast to Google Earth.

Usage: hovering the mouse-pointer over the icon of a float brings up a menu which lists clickable links leading to float information, such as TS-plots.

More detailed real-time data are available for the Australian floats at

You are most welcome to explore this resource and to feedback any comments.
