Optical proxy measurements of sinking particle flux and water-column bio-optical profiles were obtained from profiling floats in the Sargasso Sea to expand the number of particle flux observations in the critical and under-sampled “twilight zone”. A typical float cycle consisted of the descent to the target park depth, a park phase at the target depth which cycled among depths ranging 150-1000 m, a descent to 1000 m, an ascent to the surface during which measurements are made, and a surface telemetry phase, during which a GPS fix is obtained. Dates, times, and locations obtained during the surface telemetry phase are provided. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
