Below 400 m, AAIW were found with temperatures between 5 and 10[degrees]C, salinity between 34.5 and 34.5, and dissolved oxygen between 3 and 4 m [L.sup.-1].
Further down, there is the layer of AAIW up to an approximate depth of 1000 m, with low temperatures (7 to 4[degrees]C) and reduced salinity values (34.3-34.4), and a higher dissolved oxygen (3-4 m [L.sup.-1]).
Variations in the depth distribution of the ESSW and AAIW and their mixing zone are of great importance, as they appear to determine the depth distribution range of P.
AAIW was present mainly from 700 m (2.0-4.0[degrees]C and 34.2-34.6 psu) to eventually 1,500 m, while NADW was found at depths between 1,500-2,000 m (3.0-4.0[degrees]C; 34.6-35.0 psu).
Species with temperate and subtropical affinities were restricted to hauls that sampled depths below 700 m, which is the upper limit of AAIW in the area (Hogg & Owens, 1999).
Heterocarpus reedi occurs in an area where Subsurface Equatorial Water (ESSW) and Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW) mix between 200 and 500 m.
These seamounts are influenced by several water masses: Subtropical Water (STW), Subantarctic Water (SAAW), Equatorial Subsurface Water (ESSW), and Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW), but are predominantly influenced by SAAW and STW (Fig.
