ArgoFloatKernel_exp(particle, fieldset, time)[source]#

Argo float kernel to simulate an Argo float cycle with change of mission parameters in a specific geographical area

  • particle (ArgoParticle_exp) – A virtual Argo float of ‘local-change’ type

  • fieldset (parcels.fieldset.FieldSet) –

    A FieldSet class instance that holds hydrodynamic data needed to transport virtual floats. This instance must also have the following attributes:

    • parking_depth, profile_depth, vertical_speed, cycle_duration, life_expectancy, mask

    • area_xmin, area_xmax, area_ymin, area_ymax, area_cycle_duration, area_parking_depth

  • time
