Sometimes accessing and decoding the freely available Argo data files in NetCDF format can be difficult (see the beginner’s guide to get started) for those not familiar with the format or how to use the data. While there are existent data viewers like Ocean Data View (ODV) and Java Ocean Atlas (JOA) that can read in Argo profile data, several visualizations and web applications have been developed to help a wide range of users access and view Argo data.  Browse through the table below to learn more about the available options.  If you have a way to visualize Argo data that you would like added to the table below, email argo@ucsd.edu.
