08.01.11: Analysis of 5145, 6401, 6891 and 6403 ARGO floats - an update

We update and complete the basic analysis of ARGO floats started in this note and updated in this note and this note.

The trajectories are shown in Fig. 1.

Figure 1: Trajectories of the ARGO floats: up to Sept. 2010 for 5145 and May. 2011 for all others.

The potential density σ (referenced at the surface), the Brunt-Vaisala frequency (BVF) and nitrate (NTR) are plotted in Figs. 2 to 5 for each of the float.
