Argo is an internationally coordinated activity aimed at characterizing both the temperature and salinity structure of the mid-and upper-ocean through deployment of autonomous profiling floats and making the data available to users with in 24 hrs of reception. To cater to wide users of oceanographic data, mainly from the universities, who lack high bandwidth internet connections, an Argo Data Explorer (ADE) on Argo data and products for the Indian Ocean is prepared. ADE is a Java-based application that provides the interface for the selecting Argo temperature and salinity profiles from region of interest. In addition to the Argo data, value added products obtained from temperature and salinity profiles are also included. The interface provided in DVD gives the users power to select data from any region of interest, view the profile plots, zoom and filter based on multitude of queries. Users lacking high-speed network for downloading the Argo data, can order for a copy of the DVD.
