French Contribution to Argo

France contributes to Argo in different ways :

  • Provor float development
  • Coordination of Argo deployment for Atlantic Ocean
  • France and European data processing
  • One of the GDAC (Global Data Center for Argo)

France is also a user of the Argo network both for operational oceangraphy purposes (Mercator-Ocean) and Scientific research (see Science section on this WWW)
