File format

All our data are provided in netCDF format. This is a self-describing format which is widely accepted by the user community, and is by necessity efficient and reliable.

When you request Argo data, the files supplied will be designated by the float ID number (normally a 7 digit number), followed by the file type or profile number (for single profile files).

Further details on how to access data can be found here.
