From the results of their study with Argo floats, oceanographers Prof. Dean Roemmich from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, and Dr Philip Sutton from NIWA, have confirmed the world's oceans have risen in temperature, as they explain to Paul Brennan.
Deep-diving Ocean Floats
Oceanographers aboard NIWA's research vessel Tangaroa are testing a deep-diving Argo float to monitor changes in the oceans at depths to 6000 metres. June 2014.
The ARGO Project
More than 3000 robotic floats drift around the world's oceans collecting their vital signs and sending the data via satellite. April 2011.
