Temperature and salinity profile data from globally distributed Argo profiling floats for the week of 2003-08-03 for the Global Argo Data Repository, date ranged from 2003-04-28 to 2003-08-09 (NODC Accession 0001132)

The U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) operates the Global Argo Data Repository (GADR) as the long-term archive for the International Global Argo Project (for additional information about Argo, see http://www.argo.ucsd.edu/ (last accessed August 2003)). Argo data archived by the US NODC on a weekly basis starting the second quarter of FY 2003, may include real-time and/or delayed-mode profiles of ocean temperature and salinity, as well as related conductivity and/or pressure measurements (if any), collected by Argo profiling floats.
