Biogeochemical sensors

The Argo array offers a unique platform to sample remote oceanic regions. By fitting floats with additional sensors, a global ocean biogeochemical observing system can be developed based on profiling floats. The most widely used biogeochemical sensors measure oxygen, bio-optics and nitrate,
