<p>The ALOHA Wirewalker dataset is a collection of autonomous oceanographic observations from the North Pacific Ocean that were obtained with two wave-powered drifting profilers (Wirewalker&trade;, Del Mar Oceanographic) since June 2017. The autonomous profilers were deployed in the open ocean where they moved vertically along a wire that was suspended between a float at the sea surface and a weight placed at 400 m depth. The system horizontal displacement followed the ocean currents. These observations allow the investigation of the diel ecosystem variability and the study of the formation and maintenance of relatively thin layers of plankton accumulation thank...
