How to acknowledge Argo data:

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.
