In the discussion thread "northern methane concentration" I had started a discussion about southern methane concentrations in particular about methane and temperature in Antarctica. I thought that it would make more sense to open up a seperate thread for this.
I tried to find more halfway accessible data. Since here and here it was suggested that the warming pause starting at round 1999/2000 (which seems as said partially also correlated with the methane values) may be at least partially linked to a heat uptake of deep ocean water, I tried to look at the ARGO data, at least around antarctica. As I understood (I hope I haven't overseen something) for all the there offered data products it is necessary either to have something like your own software for reading CDF files or to download extra software. Since I already have google earth, I thus chose this application. Unfortunately as it seems the data offered there is in a rather very bad shape. It seems each buoy is operated by a different agency and each agency has its own paradigms to not or to display data. On a first glance I found that the australian buoys appeared to offer at least something. I could though nowwhere find a history of ocean temperatures (preferebly with depth). These are all the australian floats, as I understood. A lot of them died as it seems. And this is a typical information you get if you investigate the floats. And as said the australian informations appeared to be as considerably detailed in contrast to the other buoys. If you know of better displays please let me know.
