Abstract : Spatial distributions of temperature and salinity within an area in the northwestern Sargasso Sea during June 1965 revealed two temperature/salinity regimes within the area extending to depths greater than 1,000 meters. Differences in temperature and salinity are believed to result from vertical displacement rather than from modifications of the water mass. (Author)
