The Cromwell Current is a major current and in mass transport is one of the largest in the Pacific being exceeded only by the Kuroshio Current. It appears to be in approximate geostrophic balance. The current is known to exist in the eastern part of the equatorial Pacific and further investigation may indicate its presence in the western part. It has a counterpart in the Atlantic about which very little is known at this time.
