    This application will put the location of all Argo floats (with their WMO ID numbers) on a Google Earth globe. Once installed it will update itself automatically when you start Google Earth. You can click on any float and get a lot of information about that instrument. Very cool!
    It may take just a little while to come up but you will end up seeing the Google Earth map with lots of green dots all over it!- These are the Argo Floats. The brighter the colour the more recently it has surfaced.

    You can see if your tester is working by touching the metal together. This will complete the circuit and make the light bulb glow. If it doesn't glow, check your connections to make sure everything is taped together in the right way.
    Now to use your saltwater tester, put just the tips of the metal in saltwater, about an inch apart. Make sure the two metal parts don't touch. The saltwater will act like a wire, connecting the metal sticks, completing the circuit, and making the light bulb glow.

    How this works.
    The light bulb glows in saltwater because the saltwater acts like an invisible wire to connect the circuit. That's because when you add salt to water, the salt molecules dissolve in the water and break into smaller parts called ions. The ions carry electricity through the water.
