This report discusses various functionalities of Sound Velocity Atlas (SoVeAT) tool developed for use by Naval Operations Data Processing and Analysis Centre (NODPAC) a wing of Indian Navy. The subsurface profile data of temperature and salinity (T/S) used in developing this tool is the Argo data which is obtained from INCOIS Argo mirror archives which is obtained from two Global Data Assembly Centre’s (GDAC) namely Coriolis in France and USGODAE in USA. These data sets are processed, quality controlled and merged to form a unique data set for enhancing the Sound Velocity climatology of Indian Ocean (30E - 120 E and 69 S - 30 N). With this sound velocity data derived from Argo T/S, Graphic User Interface (GUI) based tool is built for visualizing parameters viz., Sound Velocity, Temperature, Salinity and bathymetry. This tool has capability to generate climatology dynamically between any chosen periods apart from visualizing various plots which are useful for Navy while at sea. Also provision for adding newly observed T/S data is provided making this most robust sound velocity tool for use by the Indian Navy.
