Argo online school
You are a teacher and you would like to introduce Argo floats to your class? Join the "Adopt a float project" and adopt one of theses underwater robots and follow it during its scientific voyage. The trajectory of the float brings the students into an oceanic zone (e.g. the Mediterranean or the North Atlantic) and, in real-time, allows them to participate in the observations collected by this float as well as to the sciences that are associated.
Identify the instruments the oceanographers use
Argo floats are not the only tools available to oceanographers to probe the oceans! Gliders, buoys, rossettes... Find out about all these other measuring devices with this ready-to-colour image developed by SOCIB:
