Argo bio floats from Coriolis

Argo floats perform core-Argo mission observations : pressure, temperature and salinity  observations between surface and 2000 metres depth.

Bio-Argo floats provide additional observations such as oxygen, chlorophyll, nitrate, pH, turbidity, backscaterring, cdom and more.

The bio-Argo data are not yet available on Argo GDAC (glabal data centre).

During an interim period, bio-Argo data managed by Coriolis DAC (data assembly centre) are available from a specific ftp server :
