In der 'Big Lagoon' in Kalifornien kommen Perioden ausgeprägter Schichtung vor, in welchen Salzgehaltsunterschiede bis zu über 20% zwischen Oberfläche und Boden gemessen werden. Während dieser Periode entwickeln sich unterhalb der Salzgehaltssprungschicht anoxische Bedingungen, die Copepoden konzentrieren sich innerhalb der Sprungschicht; sie erreichen Populations-dichten über 100.000 Individuen pro m3. Die Ursachen für die beobachteten vertikalen Verbreitungsmuster der Copepoden scheinen reduzierte Salzgehalte zu sein, welche mit erhöhter Temperatur oberhalb der Salzgehaltssprungschicht zusammenwirken, sowie Sauerstoffmangel unterhalb der Sprungschicht.
