Perhaps the word "toolbox" is an overstatement--The functions here may be expanded in the future, but for now here are two functions:
1. argofiles: finds the urls of Argo NetCDF files within specified geographic coordinates and temporal limits, and
2. argodata: downloads NetCDF files found by argofiles and imports temperature, salinity, and pressure data into the Matlab workspace.

Added live scripts


Made adjustments to accommodate changes to the data naming structure. The data are organized in a strange way on the NODC server, and they seem to keep changing it slightly. Email me if you run into any issues.

Updated the nodc data link.
