To process delayed mode quality control on floats, each DM operator has improved the database for his area and we have at present 4 different reference databases : SeHyd for the Pacific, IOHB for the Indian, BS (Böhme-Send) + ATL CTD or Hydrobase for the Atlantic.
SeHYD and IOHB are available in a form suitable as input files (wmo_boxes) fro WJO/OW. IOHB has data formatted in both WJO standard levels and as full profiles. SeHYD is available only at WJO standard levels.
On the following links, you will have access to those different regional reference databases :
- Recent CTD from Coriolis and Böhme-Send method contact : Codac
- Atlantic Hydrobase : web site hydrobase
- SODB : web site SODB
CCHDO Clivar & Carbon Hydrographic Data Office
CCHDO has extracted for ARGO recent CTD( 2001-2006) and made them accessible to the Argo Delayed mode operators. These data ore on the ifremer ftp site. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get an user name / password
Be careful that all those datasets must be only used for the delayed mode quality control of the Argo floats, some data of the added cruises have confidential access.
