Float data available via ERRDAP at http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/alamo/erddap/. This data server provides a simple, consistent way to download scientific data sets in common file formats. Near real time data monitoring and exploration is facilitated with a Live Access Server (LAS). Selected ALAMO floats also transmit near real time data on the Global Telecommunications System (GTS).
