Hope Spot - Pacific Subtropical Convergence Zone

About Hope Spot - Pacific Subtropical Convergence Zone
This area includes the Challenger Fracture Zone and is bounded by the Salas y Gomez ridge to the north, and the Valdivia Fracture Zone to the south. At its southeast edge, the circulation around this feature forces a salinity gradient in the ocean, with fresher and warmer waters of the western Pacific lying to its west and cooler and saltier waters to its east. This convergence zone is one of two potential high-use regions for post-nesting females within the South Pacific Gyre as indicated by an Eastern Pacific leatherback tracking dataset.
