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 The intention is that this report will provide a handy reference and it will be kept from becoming out-of-date by updates to the relevant webpages.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. ...
Zemanovic, Marguerite E.; Richardson, Philip L.; Price, James F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-01)In October, 1984, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution SOFAR float group began a three and a half year field program to measure the velocity field of the Mediterranean water in the eastern North Atlantic. The principal ...
