Abstract
    Based on mean multiyear temperature and salinity data structural zones and layers are isolated. Within their limits there are favourable conditions for the development of processes such as layer convection and salt fingers. It is shown that distribution of their parameters is conditioned by location of intermediate water mass boundaries and front interfaces. Stability of the density ratio value Rrho for various areas is revealed. The obtained results are in good agreement with STD=sounding data. Compared are profiles of Rrho and local estimates of heat and salt fluxes for various structural zones.
