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 The intention is that this report will provide a handy reference and it will be kept from becoming out-of-date by updates to the relevant webpages.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. ...
Warm water pathways in the northeastern North Atlantic ACCE RAFOS float data report November 1996 - November 1999 Furey, Heather H.; Bower, Amy S.; Richardson, Philip L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-11)This is the final data report of all acoustically tracked RAFOS float data collected by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 1996-1999 during the Atlantic Climate Change Experiment (ACCE). The RAFOS float component ...
Richardson, Philip L.; Wooding, Christine M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-04)As part of the Semaphore Experiment four Meddies (Mediterranean Water Eddies) were discovered in the Canary Basin and tracked with freely drifting RAFOS floats. An additional Meddy was discovered off Lisbon by Pingree ...
