Scientists from around the world are meeting at the CSIRO in Hobart to talk about new ways they can use robots that are measuring the ocean.

The team has placed almost 4000 robots called Argo floats all over the world's oceans.

The Argo floats dive down to depths of two kilometres collecting information that is used to measure climate change and predict weather.
