Since Argo data are made freely available we ask that where Argo data are used in a publication or product, the following acknowledgement is given:
"These data were collected and made freely available by the International Argo Program and the national programs that contribute to it. (http://www.argo.ucsd.edu, http://argo.jcommops.org). The Argo Program is part of the Global Ocean Observing System."
In addition if you are using Argo data from Australian floats please add the following acknowledgment:
“Australian Argo data was sourced from the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) - IMOS is a national collaborative research infrastructure, supported by Australian Government.”
If you plan to use or are using Argo data, the Argo Steering Team requests that, as a courtesy, you inform the groups responsible for the floats that you are using of the type of study you are undertaking. You can find who to contact by going to http://wo.jcommops.org/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Argo, selecting the quick link "Platform" and entering the WMO or Telecom ID.
