Location of mode-1 and mode-2 internal solitary waves off the Amazon shelf

Location of the leading wave of mode-1 and mode-2 internal solitary wave (ISW) packet off the Amazon shelf from 2005 to 2021 visible in MODIS-Terra images. Each mapped ISW signature is associated with one ID number and has 12 points of latitude and longitude to describe the location of its crest.
