The quasi-isothermal halocline between depths of about 100 and 200 m is a striking feature of the temperature-salinity characteristics in the northeaatem Pacific, north of about 40° N. An hypothesis is offered to explain the origin of this feature in terms of circulation, dilution, and winter mixing.
