ALOHA Mooring An elevator measures a half-mile column of water as tides and currents change.The ALOHA mooring consists of a buoy that floats 165 m (about 500 feet) below the surface, anchored to the seafloor at 891 m (2,923 feet) depth. An instrument called a vertical profiler makes measurements every second to capture a detailed motion picture of water conditions and currents at all depths around the MARS site
