This report and its accompanying webpage (http://www.whoi.edu/science/PO/rafos/index.htm) describe the processing steps for RAFOS floats, from subscribing to Service Argos to plotting the final data for a data report. The MATLAB-based tracking software ARTOA-II is described in detail. ARTOA-II allows the user to convert raw hexidecimal data to decimal format, calculate float clock drifts, edit raw data, and use the time-of-arrival data to calculate float trajectories. The intention is that this report will provide a handy reference and it will be kept from becoming out-of-date by updates to the relevant webpages.

KAPEX RAFOS float data report 1997-1999 part B : float trajectories at 750 m in the Benguela Current Richardson, Philip L.; Pacheco, M. A.; Wooding, Christine M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-06)Thirty-two RAFOS floats were launched at the depth of intermediate water, near 750 m, in the Benguela Current along 30S and its extension along 7W. The floats were tracked acoustically for two years during 1997–1999. ...
Berteaux, Henri O.; Walden, Robert G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-12)The design of an oceanographic platform can be defined as the rational specification of the platform dimensions and geometry. This specification is usually the result of an iterative process which compares the ...
SOFAR float trajectories from an experiment to measure the Atlantic cross equatorial flow (1989-1990) Richardson, Philip L.; Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Wooding, Christine M.; Schmitz, William J.; Price, James F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-08)Neutrally buoyant SOFAR floats at nominal depths of 800, 1800, and 3300 m were tracked for 21 months in the vicinity of western boundary currents near 6N and at several sites in the Atlantic near 11N and along the equator. ...
