Description

This is the NetCDF file for cycle 1 of Argo float 5903586, downloaded from ftp://usgodae.org/pub/outgoing/argo/dac/aoml/5903586/profiles/SD5903586_001.nc on 2020 June 24 (this URL appears to be unreliable). As its filename indicates, it holds "synthetic" data in "delayed" mode. The oxygen values are adjusted by 16%, as is shown here, and in the documentation for useAdjusted().
