Argo is an international collaboration that collects high-quality\ntemperature and salinity profiles from the upper 2000m of the ice-free\nglobal ocean and currents from intermediate depths. The data come from\nbattery-powered autonomous floats that spend most of their life drifting\nat depth where they are stabilised by being neutrally buoyant at the\n\"parking depth\" pressure by having a density equal to the ambient pressure\nand a compressibility that is less than that of sea water. At present there\nare several models of profiling float used in Argo. All work in a similar\nfashion but differ somewhat in their design characteristics. At typically\n10-day intervals, the floats pump fluid into an external bladder and rise\nto the surface over about 6 hours while measuring temperature and salinity.\nSatellites or GPS determine the position of the floats when they surface,\nand the floats transmit their data to the satellites. The bladder then\ndeflates and the float returns to its original density and sinks to drift\nuntil the cycle is repeated. Floats are designed to make about 150 such\ncycles.\nData Management URL: http://www.argodatamgt.org/Documentation\n\ncdm_data_type = TrajectoryProfile\nVARIABLES:\nfileNumber (File Number)\ndata_type\nformat_version (File format version)\nhandbook_version (Data handbook version)\nreference_date_time (Date of reference for Julian days, seconds since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z)\ndate_creation (Date of file creation, seconds since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z)\ndate_update (Date of update of this file, seconds since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z)\nplatform_number (Float unique identifier)\nproject_name (Name of the project)\npi_name (Name of the principal investigator)\n...

It was installed in 2015 \non the seafloor 1.5km off the coast of Spiddal, Co. Galway, Ireland at a depth of 20-25m. Underwater \nobservatories allow ocean researchers unique real-time access to monitor ongoing changes in the marine \nenvironment. The Galway Bay Observatory is an important contribution by Ireland to the growing global network of \nreal-time data capture systems deployed in the ocean. Data relating to the marine environment at the Galway \nObservatory site is transferred in real-time through a fibre optic telecommunications cable to the Marine \nInstitute headquarters and then made publically available on the internet. The data includes a live video \nstream, the depth of the observatory node, the water temperature and salinity, and estimates of the chlorophyll \nand turbidity levels in the water which give an indication of the volume of phytoplankton and other particles, \nsuch as sediment, in the water. Maintenance take place on the observatory every 18 to 24 months. This CTD \n(Conductivity, Temperature, Depth) and Oxygen Dataset comprises of the raw data that is collected from the \nGalway Observatory site using an Idronaut Ocean-Seven 304 plus Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) sensor \nprobe. The sensor measures the temperature and conductivity of the seawater. The conductivity is used to \ncalculate an estimate of the salinity. The pressure exerted by the seawater above is used to calculate the depth \nof the sensor, and these parameters are also used to estimate the speed of sound within the sea. The Ocean-Seven \n304 Plus CTD has also been equipped with a polarographic IDRONAUT dissolved oxygen sensor which measure the \ndissolved oxygen concentration of the seawater. The sensor is deployed on the EMSO Smartbay Cable End Equipment \nNode in Galway Bay in approx. 25m depth of water.\n\ncdm_data_type = Point\nVARIABLES:\ninstrument_id\n...
