History of the Argo CTD

History of the Argo CTD

Believe it or not, the first profiling floats couldn’t measure temperature and salinity. They solely traced ocean currents, totally ignorant of the sweet CTD data they were passing by. Adding a CTD changed the game. Learn more about the early beginnings of Argo, and how Sea-Bird’s first float CTD helped change the face of oceanography.
