1. Introduction North Pacific Intermediate Water (NPIW) occupies the subtropical gyre region of the North Pacific and has well-defined low salinity at a depth range of 300–800 m ( Sverdrup et al. 1942 ) and a distinct salinity minimum centered in the narrow density range of σ θ = 26.7–26.9 ( Reid 1965 ). Ventilation areas for the NPIW have been identified in subpolar regions, mainly in the Sea of Okhotsk ( Yasuda 1997 ) and the Gulf of Alaska ( Van Scoy et al. 1991 ; You et al. 2000
