        abstract:  Argo, an international program to deploy a global array of 3,000 profiling floats to observe the ocean's upper layer in real time. Along with satellites, the Argo array will initiate the oceanic equivalent of today's operational observing system for the global atmosphere.
        purpose:  The mission is to describe and understand the physical processes responsible for climate variability and predictability; ensuring safe marine operations. 4-year expected life cycle per instrument.

        supplementalInformation:  Argo is an international collaboration to establish by 2006 a global network of 3,000 drifting floats equipped with sensors for measuring the salinity and temperature of ocean water over a pre-programmed depth range. Argo floats will be deployed throughout the world's oceans from a variety of ships and aircraft and will be spaced roughly 300 kilometers apart. Upon deployment at the surface, each profiling float will sink to a depth of about 2,000 meters (a little more than a mile). After drifting with the ocean currents at that depth for 10 days, it will rise to the surface, measuring the temperature and salinity of the layers through which it rises, creating a "profile" of the ocean from 0 to 2000 meters. Upon returning to the surface, each Argo float will radio its data and position to an orbiting satellite before returning to depth and continuing another cycle. Satellites will relay the data they receive from Argo floats to land-based receiving stations. From there the data will go to operational centers and scientific teams around the world. (1) The portion of the system presently deployed is operational right now. The entire system is expected to be implemented by the end of 2005.

                value:
                  Record:  Temperatures are accurate to ?0.005 ?C and depths to ?5 m. For salinity there are two answers. The data delivered in real time are sometimes affected by sensor drift. For many fl oats this drift is small, and the uncorrected salinities are accurate to ? 0.01 p.s.u. At a later stage salinities are corrected by expert examination, comparing older fl oats with newly deployed instruments and with ship-based data. Following this delayed-mode correction, salinity errors are reduced further and in most cases the data become good enough to detect subtle ocean changes.
