However, according to Commodore John Leech of the International Hydrographic Organization IHO , recent oceanographic research has discovered the importance of Southern Circulation, and the term Southern Ocean has been used to define the body of water which lies south of the northern limit of that circulation. Others regard the seasonally-fluctuating Antarctic Convergence as the natural boundary. The maximum depth of the Southern Ocean, using the definition that it lies south of 60th parallel, was surveyed by the Five Deeps Expedition in early February The expedition leader and chief submersible pilot Victor Vescovo , has proposed naming this deepest point in the Southern Ocean the "Factorian Deep", based on the name of the manned submersible DSV Limiting Factor , in which he successfully visited the bottom for the first time on February 3, Borders and names for oceans and seas were internationally agreed when the International Hydrographic Bureau , the precursor to the IHO, convened the First International Conference on 24 July
