CTDs for Argo floats: Low power, salinity to the surface.

To assist with the international Argo program, we developed the RBRargo³ C.T.D for profiling floats. Salinity to the surface is default behaviour and a full range of additional sensors are available including optical DO, pH, PAR, fluorometers, and others.

Our RBRargo³ C.T.D has been integrated and tested on most commercial profiling floats.
