The diel distribution of epipelagic siphonophores at a station off northern Namibia (18°00′ S 10°30′ E) was studied. This area is characterized by the mixing of surface waters of the Angola Current with the waters of the northernmost Benguela region. During the sampling period, the continuous flow of the Angola Current gave rise to a marked thermocline at ca 30 m depth. In order to study the diel vertical distribution patterns of epipelagic species under these hydrographic conditions, narrow… CONTINUE READING
