CTD-Argo profilers comparison
In March 2002, 20 Argo profilers were deployed in the Subtropical North Atlantic, within the European project Gyroscope. In this contribution we compare the θ-distribution on a hydrographical section along the 24.5°N parallel using two different data sets. The first set consists of the first data transmitted by an array of autonomous profilers deployed along the section, and the second set is made up of CTD stations accomplished during the deployment and discusses the representativeness of the field at different scales.
