A particle máximum at 150-300 m within the oxygen mínimum and secondary nitrite máximum was associated with the salinity máximum of Subtropical Subsurface Water. A subsurface máximum in ETS activity was als ofound to be associated with the secondary nitrite máximum and the particle maximum. Persistence of these features at a constant depth and their location within a minimum in vertical static stability suggest an advective and/or in situ origin for the particles and an in situ development of the associated chemical and biochemical extremes.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50883||ISSN:||0022-2402||DOI:||10.1357/002224083788520496||Source:||Journal of Marine Research [ISSN 0022-2402], v. 41, p. 747-768|
