NOTICE of RTOFS Change:
Changes were made to operational RTOFS starting with the
0504202100 Z cycle to correct for a drift in assimilation of Absolute
Dynamic Topography (ADT) caused by changes in data processing.
ARGO is a global array of 3,000 free-drifting profiling floats that measures
the temperature and salinity of the upper 2000 m of the ocean. This allows,
for the first time, continuous monitoring of the temperature, salinity, and
velocity of the upper ocean, with all data being relayed and made publicly
available within hours after collection. (from the
Positions of the floats that have delivered data within the last 30 days
The RTOFS Global data is time- and space-matched (nearest neighbor) to the
ARGO profile location. Forecasts with valid times corresponding to the ARGO
profile time are presented along with the RTOFS Global climatology profile
for that location and the ARGO observation data.
