ARGO realtime float display


The Future Ocean Exhibition is constantly evolving and growing. The very latest module we made is the ARGO realtime float display. To cut the story short, ARGO is an international program to monitor the entire global ocean with the help of so called floats, little torpedo-lookalikes filled with sensors and communication stuff.

Every float dives down to 2000m level and drifts for about 10 days with the current. After this period the float surfaces and measures temperature and salinity related to pressure. Once the metal bugger reaches the surface, all the collected data is being send via satellite to a collecting point. And that’s where this installation drops in.

The ARGO realtime float display shows all the latest data in a nice graphical fashion. Everytime a float sends new data, a window pops up and shows the temperature and salinity graph of this location. In addition you see the ID, longitude, latitude and time of broadcast.
