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 December 2003)). Argo data archived by the USNODC 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.
