AdoptAFloatViz 6.0

Data visualization for adopted floats from the SOCCOM project,
a US NSF sponsored project focused on carbon and climate in the Southern Ocean.

Connecting floats and schools across the country through SOCCOM's Adopt-A-Float program!

Adopted floats are either Webb Research Apex or Sea-Bird Electronics (SBE) Navis profiling floats. Both models use ISUS/SUNA nitrate sensors and Deep-Sea DuraFET pH sensors to measure nitrate concentration and pH in the ocean.

--------------------- All floats include the following sensors, unless otherwise specified (SBE floats are also specified, as sensor models vary): ---------------------

-- N: An ISUS or SUNA nitrate sensor.
-- O: An Aanderaa Optode oxygen sensor (Sea-Bird SBE63 optical oxygen sensor for SBE floats).
-- pH: A Deep-Sea DuraFET pH sensor and pH is reported on the total proton scale.
-- FL: An FLBB biooptical sensor for chlorophyll (470/695 nm Ex/Em) and backscatter (700 nm, 140 degrees). (WET Labs MCOM FL, BB at 700 nm and CDOM optical sensor for SBE floats.)

D*: These floats have exhausted their batteries and are not operating.
